Everlasting Flower

I rescued some seeds from the old house. Mum had given me seeds for everlasting flowers. I sowed them and they grew spectacularly.
I have seven plants growing with these paper petalled flowers.
They open when its sunny but keep closed when its cold or raining.
They keep their colour once they are dried out and make beautiful dried flower heads for the house.
I cannot find their proper name. does anyone know what they are called?

They are called helichrysum, aren't they fabulous?

That's gorgeous for flowers to retain the colors right to the end.... they are holding on to legacy of their own.
