Flowers Ammobium

Winged Everlasting
Ammobium Seed

Product ID: 3800

Uncommon everlasting with adorable blooms.

The prolific 1/2- 3/4" silvery-white blooms on stiff stems are typically grown for dried-flower production but are also useful as fresh cuts for flower arrangements. The tiny blooms make an elegant addition to boutonnieres and floral crowns. As flowers mature, the papery white petals open to reveal bright-yellow centers. Flowers are typically harvested when half open, before the center is exposed. Winged Everlasting gets its name from ribbed, or winged stems the plant produces. Tender perennial in Zones 9-10 but most often grown as an annual. Once the flowers were fully open at our trial farm, we noticed lots of flying friends visiting the flowers, including hoverflies and wasps. Ht. 20-26". Avg. 93,600 seeds/oz. Packet: 50 seeds.
