Everlasting flowers are a fascinating and rewarding variety of plants to grow. They offer their beauty beyond the experience of one growing season, into the winter, after the other flowers have faded and died.
Plants that dry well can be used for arrangements and crafts that will be enjoyed for years.

Everlastings are easy to dry and preserve. It is best to cut them after the morning dew has dried, then remove unwanted leaves, rubber band in bundles loose enough for air to circulate through flowers and hang upside down in a dry place out of direct sunlight.

You can extend the life of your finished art by using glycerin (available at craft stores) to help keep them bright longer.

Best to spread them and gently rake over, water and leave!
