This pretty alpine flower is found on the mountains of central East Africa, enchanting the visitors and locals who encounter it between 2100 and 3700 m (6900 and 12100 ft). Marcescence aids its survival of the dramatic temperature fluctuations typical of its habitat. It grows up to 2.4 m (8 ft), with spreading bright green branches and narrow lanceolate leaves 2 to 7 cm (0.8 to 2.8 in) long. What’s striking is their fairly dense corymbs; the phyllaries of their capitula are shiny white or silvery (usually tinged with pink at the base) and radiate from a central disc of sunny yellow florets. Both leaf base width and involucre length are known to vary widely according to location.
