Description: Life everlasting flowers are harvested from a shrubby, aromatic, herbaceous perennial plant native to South Africa, Northern Africa, Asia-temperate, Western Asia and Southern Europe, which grows to a height of up to 60cm. The leaves are entire, thin, and oblong-lanceolate in shape, greyish or silvery-green in colour, 2-6cm in length and coated in fine ‘woolly’ hairs. The inflorescences comprised of terminal clusters of small individual golden yellow ball shaped flowers that are dry and straw-like in texture.
Interesting Fact: Did you know that Life Everlasting flowers get one of their common names of ‘Immortelle’ due to the fact that flowers retain their yellow colour once they have been dried? As well as bright colour, the flowers of life everlasting can help pot pourri blends to retain their scent; they are another of nature’s natural fixatives. Decoctions of the flower were once used to reduce inflammation and cleanse wounds, the flowers have anti-inflammatory, anti-fungicide and astringent properties.
SUGGESTED USEThe dried flowers of life everlasting can be added to pot pourri to add a bright splash of bright colour and to decorative papers and used to decorate soaps and cosmetics. Use on their own as a natural alternative to confetti, or mix with rose petals, lavender buds and cornflower petals.
