Xerochrysum bracteatum ‘Cockatoo’ 40mm TUBESTOCK
Xerochrysum bracteatum ‘Cockatoo’
A small sub-shrub perennial with grey-green leaves and a profusion of lemon-coloured everlasting flowers through the warm months. A great general garden or pot plant and cut flower. Good heat tolerant plant, flowers best in full sun but will tolerate light shade. Dry soil conditions will reduce the flowering. Feed in warm weather with a good native fertilizer, watering in well afterwards to avoid leaf burn. To dry the flowers, pick while in bud and hang upside down until dry.
