Helichrysum aucheri

Helichrysum aucheri

Helichrysum aucheri is in flower on the scree. Papery flower heads on 150mm stems. Collected in Turkey but native to greater Arabia. Grown in well drained soil and loving direct baking hot sun thus ensuring regular flowering. The silvery sheen on the foliage is sadly not at its best this year due to the continual torrential downpours we have experienced.
