Descrizione Pianta

Altezza della pianta: 3-8pm
Genus of about 500 species of annuals, herbaceous or evergreen perennials, widely distributed in Europe, Asia, Africa and South Africa, where they usually live in dry and sunny sites. Helichrysum italicum is a suffruticose perennial plant, which with its numerous twisted and ascending ramifications, forms a small bush 30-40 cm high, whitish in color due to the tomentum of smooth grey-whitish hairs that cover it at least in the juvenile stage . Leaves alternate, sessile, narrow and linear, 20-40 mm long and 1 mm wide, with the margin folded downwards, and covered with fine down on both sides. Corymb inflorescence is composed of numerous conical flower heads (10-15) placed at the apex of the stem. The flower heads have an oblong-cylindrical or bell-shaped casing, significantly longer than wide, with glandular, sub-triangular bracts and a sharp apex, placed in several rows and densely imbricated. The flowers are all tubular, fragrant, hermaphroditic, yellow-gold in color and have a long tubular corolla that ends in 5 triangular lobes. The fruit is an oval-oblong achene, more or less glandular, with a pappus of simple hairs inserted in the upper part.

Pedoclimatic needs

Any type of soil as long as it is well drained, for this reason sandy or gravelly soil is excellent. It desires full sun exposure and is particularly resistant to drought. These suffruticoses are very rustic and do not present any particular cultivation difficulties, they resist even intense frosts down to -12°/-14°C. If the temperature drops below -15°C, it is necessary to protect the tufts with mulching material, such as straw, leaves or bark. Due to the beauty of its glaucous foliage and its pleasant summer flowering, it is much appreciated on terraces, gardens and parks. To be used as a ground cover on arid slopes or to create borders. The whole plant is very aromatic and is intensively bred for the extraction of essential oils, used in perfumery.
