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

Top-notch flower for cutting and drying. Grows to 2 ft. tall, with scanty, narrow leaves and 1–2-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 6–12 in. apart.
