Heirloom.

Not only Irish eyes will smile at this unusual plant. Its bright green bells with their tiny white “clappers” are always a conversation piece. Turns straw-colored when dry—a very valuable, long-lasting dried flower. The strain in this packet was selected for its superior cut and/or dried flower use. Reseeds, often producing new plants the following year from self-sown seeds.
