The flowers themselves are small and fuzzy, clustered at the centre of the bract. They are excellent for cut flower arrangements and dry well. Plant in moist soil or water up to 2 cm deep. Best grown in a container and moved into the greenhouse in winter for protection. Fertilize periodically. Native to North America. Plant in full sun or part shade.
