Gomphrena ‘Strawberry Fields’ are taller than most Gomphrena and the flowers are super vivid and striking, making it an excellent flower for cutting. The flowers can also be easily dried…just hang in a well ventilated and dark space.
Gomphrena seeds are best soaked overnight, then sow either indoors at the beginning of April or outside after the frosts have done their stuff. I prefer to start some off in pots with a thin covering of vermiculite over the seeds as they like some light to germinate.
Drought tolerant and will thrive in most soils…but likes a sunny spot.
