Description

Your favorite silver-leafed trailing plant, now available in seed

At last, you can grow the best foliage plant we know for containers of all types FROM SEED instead of paying top dollar for plants. Helichrysum is such a boon for the basket, window box, and large planter. The small, silvery leaves are as soft as Lamb's Ear, and they look terrific for months on end. Annuals may come and go, but helichrysum sees you through from spring till the end of fall.

Just 6 to 8 inches tall (it sort of bubbles up, with a many-stemmed look), helichrysum spreads 18 to 24 inches wide. You don't have to constantly pinch the growing plants to get them to branch out, either—they are naturally multi-stemmed and very lush. You can achieve a greener look for the foliage in part shade (or growing indoors), but for the full silver, give this plant plenty of sun.

This multipelleted seed germinates easily, and you'll be looking at masses of soft silver foliage within about 3 months of sowing. A great companion to spreading petunias, helichrysum is also great with pentas, geraniums, vinca, and just about anything else you care to grow. Enjoy.

Multipelleted Seeds - Each pellet contains 3 seeds.
