The Q&A Archives: Flowers for Drying

Question: I want to plant some flowers which will dry in a dehydrator so that this winter we can continue to enjoy our garden. What would you recommend planting? Douglas Koch Winchester, VA

Answer: Start with what are commonly called the everlastings: statice, strawflower, Xeranthemum, Glove amaranth, Bells of Ireland. You don't have to dry them in a dehydrator...they produce dry flowers to begin with! See page 29 of the Burpee catalog.
