Helichrysum petiolare

Buy now, pay later with


Helichrysum petiolare is also known as the Licorice plant because its beautiful silver-grey foliage has a slight liquorice scent. Its silvery leaves are velvety soft to touch and trail making it great for hanging baskets or as a groundcover that spills over an ugly retaining wall. Give it a trim every now and then to keep a nice compact shape but other than that it is low maintenance and drought tolerant once established and can handle full sun or shade. So if you are looking for a nice mounding groundcover with silver foliage this is your guy. 

 Quick Facts: 

  • What to use me for: As a border plant or in hanging baskets 

  • I grow to: 30-60cm high, 1.2m wide 

  • Where to place me: I love full sun but can handle shade and everything in between

  • Watering conditions: I am drought tolerant once established 
  • Soil Conditions: I like a well-draining soil mix 

  • My features: My scented foliage is a real hit
