Curry Plants

Helichrysum angustifolium

A type of herb plant that is grown for its ornamental beauty & bright flowers, plus its aroma. As a young plant, curry looks very similar to lavender, growing dusty greenish-grey, needle-shaped leaves. Once it matures however, the appearance of the curry plant changes as small round, yellow-colored flowers bloom on the stalks of the plant; which may reach 24 to 48 inches in height.

In summer, clusters of small yellow flowers are produced that can be used in dried flower arrangements since they retain their color.

Due to the strong aroma of this herb plant (which does have a distinctive curry-like fragrance) many gardeners will use it in potpourris or dried wreaths. It is not to be confused with curry seasoning (which is a blend of spices) or curry leaves that grow on a Curry Tree (Murraya koenigii).

Medicinal, Helichrysum offers powerful tissue regeneration properties, and aids in the formation of scar tissue. Historically, curry plants were also revered as a powerful aphrodisiac for attracting a lover!
