Habitat and Ecology [top]

Habitat and Ecology:A common cushion-plant of rock-faces on the granite pinnacles of the Haggeher mountains. Altitude of 750–1,300 m.

One of the characteristic cushion plants of the Haggeher, frequently growing with Hypericum scopulorum and Helichrsyum aciculare, the only other cushion-forming species of Helichrysum on Soqotra. H. rosulatum is readily recognized by its soft, narrowly elliptic leaves and the more or less sessile flowering heads. It is less common than H. aciculare and seems more ecologically demanding, being less widespread and not growing at such low altitudes as that species.
