Icholocholo Overview

Helichrysum nudifolium is a sun-loving, perennial herb with a pale yellow inflorescence and shiny, light green leaves. There are many species very similar to H. nudifolium, which can cause confusion. Culturally, medicinally, and historically, this species is one of the most important in South Africa. It has not enjoyed horticultural exposure; however, it is easy to grow in the garden and makes a good border plant. ZA Distribution: Eastern Cape.
