Native to the mountainous regions of East and Central Africa, the shrub Helichrysum formosissimum has been discovered at elevations from 1800 to 4200 m (5900 to 13800 ft). On the Rwenzori of Uganda, its white to pink flowers speckle the bamboo and heather forests, often near bogs as it prefers a damp site. In a striking adaptation to the Rwenzori’s incessant rains, its flowers will close rapidly upon contact with water droplets. The plant can reach 2 m (7 ft) in height, with aromatic leaves 2 to 15 cm (0.8 to 6 in) long and flowerheads 2 to 3 cm (0.8 to 1.2 in) in diameter. Because of the extremes of its montane environment, this species exhibits phenotypic plasticity—slight differences in appearance between individuals of varied sites.
