Description Briscoe's Tips Use Them!
 

Gomphrena haageana

These upright, eye catching annuals make a beautiful filler in your garden or bouquet! Taller and more erect than most Gomphrena varieties, 'Strawberry Fields' produces vibrant red bract covered tips from which delicate little yellow blooms grow. These bracts are actually part of an extension of the plant's leaves, though they look very similar to small red Alpine Strawberries. These papery-thin bracts dry need little water and dry easily, which allows the plant to retain its brilliant red "bloom". Extremely attractive to bees and butterflies, these clover-like red pom poms are considered everlasting, like Celosias, meaning they will stand the test of time when used in dried arrangements.

Similar to the 'QIS Purple' Gomphrena, 'Strawberry Fields' makes a great splash of color when used to under plant larger plants in your garden or as a stunning stand alone in a window box or decorative container.

Gomphrenas are natives of Texas and Mexico so they are perfect for areas with hot and humid summers. Try planting them with Lantanas or Statice 'Supreme Blue' for a beautiful display!

wonderful Gomphrena Strawberry Fields January 9, 2015
Reviewer: Caroll Drazen from Wallingford, PA United States  
I ordered a number of Gomphrena Strawberry Fields for the 2014 season. They arrived in great condition, bloomed all summer and I have even dried some for the winter. This year I have doubled my order (because my daughter has insisted on getting some for her garden). A wonderful plant, and a pleasure to do  business with the Grower's Exchange.
