ABOUT IMMORTELLE

In the late spring, on the dry, rocky soil which tolerates drought and heat well, millions of small sun-coloured and sun-shaped flowers bloom under the warm sun. The scent and healing ability of the yellow flowers of Helichrysum italicum attracted the attention of our ancestors and motivated them to use and study the plant. Immortelle is called the ‘immortal’ plant for a reason. The etymological name of the genus, Helichrysum, comes from the Greek words Helios (Sun) and chrysos (gold), which are associated with the colour of the flowers. The English name ‘everlasting’, and the French name ‘immortelle’, mean immortal, eternal, because the flowers retain their yellow colour and scent even when they dry.

Immortelle (Helichrysum italicum) is a perennial, aromatic, semi-shrubby herb of the composite family (Asteraceae). It can grow up to 50-70 cm in height and its branched stems bear small, light-green hairy leaves and golden-yellow head-shaped inflorescence composed of several small flowers. Other names for the plant include curry plant and Italian strawflower, and Croatian folk names of the plant include: cmilje, marjetica, smilj, žuto smilje, kadila (Pag), brusila (Krk), magriž (Rab), uskolisni smilj and bela brada.
