Description

Something New for Garden, Pot, Vase, and Table!

This annual is a must-have for cutting, dyeing, and conversation-starting!

The must-have foliage plant of the season, Bed Head also happens to be the first-ever Cushion Bush available as seed. A staple of bouquets and combo plantings in Australia, it has finally made its way across the world and is ready to charm us in home and garden!

Bed Head forms a neat little globe of dense, tangled, jutting silvery stems and needle-thin leaves. Compared to barbed wire (in appearance only!), the foliage holds its shape beautifully, creating a fascinating silhouette that just begs for Petunias, Pansies, Geraniums, and other annuals of any season to wind themselves around it! Just 8 to 10 inches high and wide, it pops easily into containers of almost any size, and can fill a 4- or 6-inch pot all by itself.

As fun as Bed Head is in combo plantings, its most common use is as filler and decorative material for the house. Because it holds its texture so nicely before and after drying, it adds great shape to wreaths, bouquets, centerpieces, and more. It's easy to spray or dye, and it lasts for many months as an everlasting. Even if you aren't "crafty," you can spruce up your cut-flower vases with this Cushion Bush!

Grow Bed Head in full sun. It loves heat and doesn't mind dry soil. Have fun experimenting with this unique newcomer! Pkt is 15 seeds.
