        Yes @Logan, it was called Helichrysum but now it's Xerochrysum......or Strawflower to me!!:). I always grow it from seed each year , I have them in all colours dotted around the garden. Love them ,and they do dry so well .:dbgrtmb:

          My tropical hibiscuses didn't want to flower in the garden where they were all summer long. But they started flowering now in the house.

                            Its Latin prefix sounds similar to what some people used to call the curry plant - what was that?
