    Ensure well-drained soil, especially if planting in Autumn. Easy grower.

    Harvesting Tips:

    Harvest after almost all the small individual flowers on the flower spike are open - earlier harvesting will cause the top of the spike to wilt. Very long lasting cut flower and dries extremely well, keeping its colour. Harvest stems regularly for continued flowers. For drying, cut and hang upside down in a warm, dry place.
