Everlasting, aka Helichrysum

Everlasting, originally uploaded by andiwolfe.

This is one of several species of Helichrysum that occurs in South Africa. The common name is Everlasting, and it is an appropriate name. These bracts are persistent throughout the year. I photographed this specimen at Silvermine Nature Reserve on the Cape Peninsula.
