Xerochrysum (formerly known as Bracteantha or as part of Helichrysum; Asteraceae) 2:325
Tasmania has six native species of Xerochrysum. These have changed names at least twice. The Student's Flora describes them as species of Helichrysum. They were known for a number of years after that as species of Bracteantha.

They are all medium sized herbs of open places. They all have showy, solitary flower heads. The phyllaries are conspicuous, papery and resemble petals or ligulate flowers.
