An annual and native of South Africa, Xeranthemum annuum is a pretty everlasting flower, sending up its daisy-like flowers, borne singly on 2 ft (60 cm) stems, during July and August.

The flowers have an outer ring of petals and with numerous petaloids at the centre.

They appear in all shades of crimson, rose and pink, also blush-white.

They require a sunny position and a dry, sandy soil.

Sow in early April where the plants are to bloom.
