Spring stars : Paper Daisy or Straw Flower

Paper Daisy plants are easy to grow. They can grow in full sun to partial shade. They can grow in poor to rich soil, can survive drought conditions too.                                                                     
Flowers are bourne on long straw  alike  plants which are 50 - 70 cm long on which flowers of 7 - 10 cm diameter are being bloomed   .                                                                                                     

The flowers exhibit a long range of colors from silvery white to rich yellow,rich red ,salmon pink,  and deep red.                                                                                                                                

The dried flowers are used for winter decoration. Flowers are cut at half open stage before the yellow centres are showing , are kept in hanging position in cool ,airy place for drying.
