      Hi Agnes,
      Its a well-established seed-grown plant in a 3-inch-pot. These have grown nicely into their pots and at this writing (4/24/2020) are neither too large nor too small for transplant. I’ll be transplanting 120 of them to the field this weekend.

      Hello Rosella,
      The essential oil is often called Corsican Helichrysum but the source plant is Helichrysum italicum, which is what we have.

      Hi Debra, I’m noticing you might be in Canada–we ship plants within the US only. The Helichrysum is in 4 inch pots.

      do these plants transplant well? Often we find that nurseries use tree material and plants don’t survive well. Are these in good soil?

      Not sure what is meant by tree material but it is true, these are very tricky as potted plants and can go south very fast. It is best to get them out of the pots and into the field promptly. I have a row of these on one of my farms that has pretty much naturalized and is evergreen (or ever-gray-green as it were). Basically we aim to provide a good transplant and surely the proper soil mix is really important. Rich soil is a bad choice for helichrysum, it needs a sandy mix. r

      Hey there, I live in zone 5b /6 in CT. Do you think a helichrysum is able to make it through a New England winter? Is it possible it might surging if I covered them? If not, I will try the potted route. I saw you said this method is tricky, do you have a soil potting ratio you can recommend ( ie. half soil, have sand, compost, etc.)

      Hi Taylor, They probably wouldn’t overwinter in the ground and mulch is very hard on them–they are mediteranean and like a sandy mix. Not too much compost. Tricky in pots. richo
