Paper Baby is an attractive and dainty native plant variety of the Rhodanthe genus, which are commonly known as Everlastings. Like other everlastings, the plant has paper like flowers with pink buds opening to white flowers with a yellow centre. The white bracts are curved creating a full flower, which adorn the plant in abundance during spring time, to the point that the soft grey green foliage becomes covered. Paper Baby forms a neat mound with a slightly trailing habit, making it the ideal ground cover in native or dry tolerant gardens. Grows approx. 25cm tall x 40cm wide.
