Botanical name: Helichrysum cymosum

Helichrysum cymosum, also called golden carpet, is a hardy, silvery-leaved shrub reaching 1 meter tall. Its woolly branches bear small yellow flower clusters that bloom through summer. This aromatic plant has traditionally been used for coughs, wounds, and pain relief. An easy-care groundcover, Helichrysum cymosum thrives in full sun or light shade, tolerates coastal conditions, and spreads nicely as an edging plant or in mixed beds. Both leaves and flowers can be used for fragrant and medicinal tea. It is readily propagated from cuttings or seeds.
