HELIPTERUM

This large Australian genus contains primarily annuals but also includes some perennials. All have daisy-like flower heads with papery rays that retain their color and form when dried. Plants are useful for winter arrangements and for garden color.

Helipterum roseum

Topnotch flower for cutting and drying. Grows 2 ft. tall, with scanty, narrow leaves and 1- to 2-in. pink or white daisy flowers. These need  full sun in warm soil; after danger of frost is past, sow seeds where plants are to grow. Thin to 6 to 12 in. apart.
