A welcome and refreshing Helichrysum form for use in combination plantings for patio containers and baskets.

The distinctive silver foliage lasts from the point of potting right through the season. And, since this variety is both heat, drought and very cold tolerant, it can be used for both summer and autumn markets.

The naturally branched and controlled habit forms a great architectural shape plant, height 20cm.

Introduced by Ball Colegrave.
