Hello Tynowyn, I harvested these this year, still need to clean them, will put it up higher on my list, stay in touch. richo
Hi Richo, I found some of this native to my back 40. I’ve read it supposed to smell sweet like maple syrup. But this plant smells like curry. Helichrysum is supposed to smell like curry and resembles pearly everlasting..I’d like your thoughts. Thank you ~ Rachel

Hi Rachel, You are right this plant has a wide distribution and it occurs near me, also. Smell is subjective and even so it is one of the very good “herbal senses” that help differentiate plants. In this case the aroma of both plants is deep and frankly I also think they smell similarly–but they are not the same plant. richo
