The mildy nutty lady who I buy all of my house plants from down the road sold me what she called a "Licorice Plant". I can't take a picture right now, but it has small green, furry leaves with white stems. It grows very rapidly and likes to be watered almost daily or it begins to shrivel. Does anyone know what this could be? I have tried researching licorice plant, but the pictures I find do not resemble my plant. Also, I want to know if this truly is a house plant. Someone looked at it and told me it was an annual??? [nutz]

Go back to the site I posted and roam around in it may have requirements for your> if not just to a search for the name of it and add house plant [dunno] maybe there is something that could guide you along,, I'm glad that at least It IS a licorice plant Or maybe if you go back to the mildly nutty lady you bought it from she could advice you ??

Helichrysum is grown here as an annual. It's great in planters and hanging pots. I've tried several times to over winter them inside but have had no luck.
