A lovely pink form of Xerochrysum papillosum which normally has all white flowers and naturally grows in southern Victoria and Tasmania. A hardy and adaptable perennial plant and makes a wonderful garden plant. It will flower from late spring through to summer, with peak flowering in spring- cut back old flowers to encourage a new flush. The papery blooms can be dried and will keep their colour for many years, pick in bud and hang upside down in an airy place. They can also be used fresh for floral work.
This plant was originally grown and selected by Plants Of Tasmania Nursery. Xerochrysum papillosum is critically endangered in the wild.

WHERE TO GET YOUR PLANT
Once you have found the plant that looks right for you, the next step is where to buy it.
Most nurseries stock a good range of plants, but due to space and supplies, they may not always have the plant that you are searching for in stock. If they don’t, they may be able to order it in for you if you request it.
Specialist nurseries are also able to give great advice, and if they don’t have the plant you have planned on, they can often suggest alternatives that will also work well for you.
