Winged Everlasting
Ammobium alatum


Uncommon everlasting with adorable blooms.

The prolific 1/2- 3/4" silvery-white blooms on stiff stems are typically grown for dried-flower production but are also useful as fresh cuts for flower arrangements. The tiny blooms make an elegant addition to boutonnieres and floral crowns. As flowers mature, the papery white petals open to reveal bright-yellow centers. Flowers are typically harvested when half open, before the center is exposed. Winged Everlasting gets its name from ribbed, or winged stems the plant produces. Tender perennial in Zones 9-10 but most often grown as an annual.
