Xerochrysum are best planted in a well-drained, loam-based soil within an acidic, alkaline or neutral PH balance. They are best positioned in an area that receives full sun. Growing them in full sun rather than partial shade will prevent the stems from flopping. Xerochrysum are well suited to growing in containers and borders as well as for a cutting garden as they make excellent cut and dried flowers.
