Due to its anti-allergic, anticoagulant, antiseptic, diuretic, fungicidal, and inflammatory characteristics, it is also called the "herb of eternal youth" or "immortal plant". Because of that there is a great demand in the pharmaceutical and cosmetic industry.

Helichrysum is a perennial, herbaceous plant, semi-solid with a grayish stem. The stalk is 10-50 cm high, upright in the upper part of the branch and oblong with shaded leaves. It has a spindle stem from which every year develops more than a dozen floral stems. The leaves are narrow, hairy, and stain-free. On the top of the stem there are several freshly flowering stuffed fleshy heads with flowers of extremely golden color. All branches end up in a bloom. The upper and the lower flowers have shorter handles, so that the flowers are approximately on the same level. The flowers after fertilization quickly mature, and the flower lodge opens and slices the seed. The seed is very tiny, elongated, dark, and docile in color and it is blown by the wind. The blooming of Helichrysum is from June to September. Helichrysum is resistant to low temperatures and has an excellent tolerance for a long lasting summer heat and dryness which makes Herzegovina a home of this amazing plant.
