Select a location with full sun and well drained soil. Strawflowers love the heat. Start outdoors after last frost date. Soil must be warm for plants to germinate. For earliest blossoms, start indoors six to eight weeks before last frost date. Water until plants are established. Mature plants are very drought tolerant.

Cut individual stems just before flowers have fully opened. Hang to finish drying in the shade.
