Description

An upright plant growing to 800 mm, with numerous stiff, narrow leaves at the base arising from a woody rootstock. The flowering stalk ends in a densely woolly, white head with hidden, small, mauve flowers. Honey bees are attracted by the light honey-like scent and nectar, and various monkey beetles are common visitors. Flowering is strongly stimulated by fire. From Greek: lana, wool; -aria, connected with: = woolly flower.
