Central Asia. It is hard to praise Helichrysum tianshanicum enough. It is polite, upright, and needs no supplemental water once it is established. The lavender-like arrangement of woolly gray foliage is attractive and the mustard yellow clusters of flowers do not detract from its beauty. The foliage has a curry-like scent when brushed. Cut back at the end of winter to promote dense growth.

Summer to autumn.  15-18 in. x 30 in.

Mustard Yellow flowers
