The curry plant.
Fresh scent of lime and curry.
Helichrysum italicum forms an attractive, compact bush 30 cm in height. Its beautiful silvery foliage lends itself to associations with Sedum, lavender, Nepeta, sage and Perovskia in dry rockeries.
Grown in pots, you will enjoy breathing in its heady aromatic scent which can be very strong.
Grow in the sun away from cold, drying winds in light, neutral to alkaline soil. Very hardy as long as it is sheltered from the winter damp.
