Golden Everlasting
Xerochrysum bracteatum
Bracteantha bracteata
(formerly Helichrysum bracteatum)

Found in large parts of Australia, on sandy and loamy soils, in woodlands, forest through to arid regions, it occurs as both annual and perennial forms, varying in habit from a prostrate to a taller plant of up to 1 metre in height. The leaves are oblanceolate to elliptic, large and varying from green to grey-green in colour.

One of the best known of the so called ‘paper daisies’ it is characterised by strong looking erect flower heads. The flower is actually comprised of a yellow centre of very small flowers that are formed into a large cluster and surrounded by the stiff floral yellow bracts. The outer bracts may also be tinged reddish brown. This give the overall appearance of large single flower, with the bracts appearing as the petals.

A colourful looking plant, it has been intensive bred for gardens and the floral industry, producing a spectacular range of colours.
