Description

Description

Belonging to the sunflower (or Asteracaea) family, the herb is native throughout the Mediterranean, and is mainly cultivated in Spain and Portugal. This perennial plant forms shrubs of narrow silver-green leaves, with fuzzy, white stems. Atop these stems are bright golden flowers that have no petals. Instead, they are made up of dry, shiny bracts - a special type of leaf, like a hybrid of foliage and petal, which is usually found at the base of the flower. This feature means that the flowers can remain eternally in bloom, hence the name ‘everlasting’. 

The flower is truly a sun worshipping plant in both the literal and metaphorical sense of the phrase; they prefer to grow in a hot environment with arid soil and were used by Ancient Greeks to create crowns for Apollo, God of the sun and light.
