Fuzzy button-like yellow flowers crowd silvery foliage on this low mounding, slightly trailing annual making it the perfect accent for your full sun cottage garden or containers. Here is a plant that complements nearly every flower or foliage annual you could pair it with. Cool silver foliage contrasts with bright yellow button flowers, so this plant brings bright color and that coveted silvery grey note to all your arrangements.

Native to Tasmania and Australia, Zones 9a to 10b, this bright annual can tolerate some frost once established in Zones 3-8. Place it as a trailing interest in your large containers or window planters. It is a continuous bloomer and appreciates a full sun location. Chrysocephalum also tolerates dry soil and will help you tackle that one dry spot that never seems to grow anything.

Flambe Yellow Strawflower Care

Plant care is easy as it is heat and drought tolerant and is not typically susceptible to insect infestation. Downy mildew has been observed in plantings without adequate air flow and too much moisture. Well draining soil is preferred with a neutral pH, 6.0 to 6.5; and it requires only infrequent watering when in ground. Fertilize once in the season for in ground plantings, and on a regular schedule for container applications.

Deadheading is not necessary, in fact, this plant tucks itself in by crowding out spent blossoms with new growth and blooms. It is a continuous bloomer once established and will bloom until fall. It is somewhat salt tolerant making this a good plant for coastal areas as it also tolerates sandy soil. Light pruning will keep it within bounds, or just let it spill over for an attractive look.

Flambe Yellow Strawflower Spacing

Spacing is important here as this low growing, mounding plant needs room to spread out. Chrysocephalum tops out at 8 to 14 inches, spreading 8 to 12 inches, and can trail up to 24 inches. Space plantings 8 to 12 inches apart. Pair it with warm to hot color calibrachoa, gomphrena, superbena, petunia annuals or spike/arching grasses for an attractive presentation and great color contrast.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
