Curry plant (helichrysum italicum)
An attractive plant, producing yellow flowers, and having a curry aroma - this is stronger than any flavour produced on cooking. Not actually used for curries, but sometimes in soups and stews (it tends to have more aroma, than any flavour it produces); it also makes an interesting flavour when stuffed into the cavity of a roasting chicken.
