Thelesperma Overview

Commonly known as Greenthreads, members of this genus of herbaceous annual or perennial flowering plant in the daisy family originate from the Americas. Traditionally parts of the plant are used to make tea. In cultivation they are commonly used for cut flowers or in mixes to create wildflower meadows where they provide nectar to butterflies and other pollinators.
