Asters 4/4: Gnaphalium

Gnaphalium californicum. California Green Everlasting. Asteraceae. Rodeo Lagoon.

Marin Headlands. California. July.

Old involucres with fruit dispersed. What appear to be petals are the bracts of each flower head.
When dried, these retain their form, which accounts for the name "Everlasting".

Good picture. Trouble with everlasting "flowers" is you eventually get sick of the sight of them grin
