Ruby Cluster Strawflower

Helichrysum amorginum 'Blorub'

Compact plants with woolly, silver-green leaves add an unusual texture to the garden. In summer, showy clusters of ball-shaped, deep pink buds are cradled in the soft foliage mounds. They open to starry white flowers with prominent yellow centers. Provides excellent contrast in mixed containers. From Rozanne and Friends™. Evergreen.
