Helichrysum (everlasting)


Helichrysum (everlasting), originally uploaded by airam94564.

I am inspired to post another flower. I hope you all don't mind. This is from my plant that has continuously bloomed for two straight years. This was from a seed.

Beauty! The everlasting flower I'm familiar with is yellow...the one they sell to tourists in Baguio.

Beatiful ~one of my fav flowers..we call them strawflowers also..and you know you can pick the flowers and they stay as they are..so if you want flowers for a wreath, or poppourri, or just to put in a bowl..they dry excellent!~Guess they deserve the name everlastings!! :) They really do last forever without changing color, I have some from years ago..I grow mine from seed also~makes them extra special~doesn't it..?! :)
Happy Tuesday!
