Grey Everlasting

The Grey Everlasting, Ozothamnus obcordatus, is a shrub that can grow to 1.5metres in height.  Again, another native in my favourite colour of yellow.

It is present in Queensland, NSW, Tasmania and Victoria.  The distribution maps tend to indicate that it is mainly present across a central line in Victoria, predominantly the Central and Central West of the State.

The featured photograph was taken in Wedderburn, Vic where this plant is in abundance through the Mallee Scrub.

Wikipedia says that the flower has potential in commercial cut flower production, perhaps a bit like Billy Buttons, although I haven’t seen any in florists.
