Helichrysum italicum means
golden sun of Italy and is evocative of the striking habitat of this plant in its bright maize-colored meadows. Immortelle is French for
everlasting and refers to the straw-like flowers that appear living even after they have dried - in a bright yellow color as if frozen in time. It is also called
curry plant because the creased twigs leave a strong curry scent on the fingers. Immortelle is a plant that can grow in even the most depleted soils and under very harsh conditions, provided there is abundant sunshine.
