Helichrysum cymosum is a hardy, evergreen small, leafy, scandent shrub with beautiful silvery, small leaves that are woolly below.
It bears compact heads of yellow, papery flowers at the tips of each branchlet from September to April. Use as an edging plant, in a mixed border, cascading over a retaining wall and containers.
Either prune regularly from young or don’t prune at all as it does not take well to pruning once mature.
It grows naturally in moist though well-drained areas. Plant in sun or semi-shade as a sub-shrub at the edges of treed areas.
Size: Up to 1m
