Curry Plant is a small shrubby perennial plant belonging to the Asteraceae family and native to the Mediterranean. In the natural environment, it prefers rocky hills and plains with a hot climate and sandy soil. The plant is used in cooking, particularly as a seasoning additive to various dishes. Interestingly, the plant contains nectar that attracts insects.
Helichrysum italicum can be easily identified due to the large number of clustered yellow flowers formed in the summer but can retain their color all year round.
The stems are close together, grow to about 60 cm (24 in) tall and harden at the bottom, making them strong and resistant to wind or cold. As for the leaves, they are silver-green in color, quite thin with sharp ends, but still not as spectacular as the flowers.
