Sturdy, straight stems and branching flower clusters store well and can be used fresh or dried. Stems are easily air-dried for arrangements. Fresh, dark green foliage and geometric buds add structure to mixed bouquets. Great in combination with sunflowers. This strain is nearly thornless for easy harvest. Tufted thistle-like flowers with oval leaves. Fiery orange-and-gold petals are edible and sometimes used as a substitute for saffron.
