Xerochrysum viscosum

I promise you these are not sticky!  But that is their name for good reason - they do have sticky stems and leaves when they are fresh.  I like to use a thin glove when I am preparing them, otherwise the sticky film builds up on my hand and it is very difficult to scrub off.  The scientific name viscosum comes from the latin word viscosus, meaning 'sticky.'  

But the stickiness disappears completely as they dry, and what is left is an absolutely stunning daisy with a wonderfully sturdy stem. 

Xerochrysum is derived from the greek words xeros - meaning 'dry' and chrysos - meaning 'gold' -  a fitting name for the yellow papery bracts that are found on these daisies. As their botanical name suggests, they are closely related to the common strawflower {Xerochrysum bracteatum} and I am surprised that these are not equally as popular.  

Sticky Everlastings are fantastic for bouquets and vases, as they will not droop, and their golden colouring is so cheerful and bright.  Smaller stems are perfect for adding into wearables such as boutonnières or flower crowns.

- Naturally dried flower bunches are a standard medium size - price is for one bunch, which measures approximately L 35cm x W 15cm and includes 20 stems.  In the first photo I am holding 4 bunches.  

- All AMBLE & TWINE flowers are locally grown in Australia and never preserved, bleached, dyed or treated in any way.  While they can last for years in your home with a little bit of care, they can ultimately be composted.  

- Care for your dried flowers by keeping them in a mild environment, away from humidity and harsh sunlight.

- Not for international sale
