HELICHRYSUM subulifolium (Strawflower, Yellow)
Helichrysum subulifolium commonly known as golden everlasting strawflowers produced from spring to autumn. Their distinctive feature is the papery bracts that resemble petals. Strawflower is a continuous bloomer. Deadheading and flower harvesting throughout the growing season prevent seed formation and prolong flowering. They are native to the grassland of Australia and made its way to Europe in the 1800s, where the nobility prized it for having anti-flammatory properties when brewed into tea.
