How convenient for me that I could find this floral accessory in any flower shop while living and crafting in Germany! (Picture above is from Internet)
I could pick up a batch of German Statice like this bundle above (picture above is from Internet) for just a few dollars and it would last me a long time while crafting. I learned it was wonderful to fill in blank spots!
The Internet tells me that German Statice is a Perennial although, not long lived. It grows to a height of 18 inches and needs full sun and well drained soil. This plant is poisonous if ingested and may cause allergic reactions to skin. I played with this stuff often and never had any reactions even though I have sensitive skin. But I only played with it in the dried form so maybe if fresh, I would have had a reaction. (Picture above is from Internet)
I would like to give this beauty a chance in my garden but not sure it could stand the heat of a Georgia Summer. It was not as hot in Germany so not sure I should try it. What do you think?
Should I try GERMAN STATICE, In the Garden...
