Helichrysum italicum
“Curry Plant”
Helichrysum italicum "Curry Plant"

First of all I have learned that there are two “Curry Plants” (the other one is subspecies serotinum), but this is the one that will survive our wet winters. As its common name suggests, the narrow, silvery-grey leaves of this dense, dwarf sub shrub smell strongly of curry. The small everlasting bright yellow flower heads are produced on long, eminently cuttable white stalks. Grows to 18”x24.” Native to dry rocky places in the Mediterranean regions.
