The 'Golden Guinea Everlasting' plant Helichrysum (from the Greek words helios 'sun' and chrysos 'gold') - found in the Eastern Cape Coastal areas of South Africa - has attractive silver/grey leaves - often an indicator of being drought resistant. The bright yellow, long everlasting daisies with dark mustard coloured centres, lend contrast in any garden setting including rockeries, and 'falling gardens'. It's tendency is to spread into a ground-covering mat in full sun, even on poor sandy soil. It produces flowers abundantly throughout summer and autumn.
