The flowerheads of Helichrysum hebelepis grow in a nearly flat to dome-shaped, corymb-like cluster of cymes at stem-tips.
Each head is surrounded by up to six rows of small involucral bracts forming a cup-shape around the cluster of tiny yellow disc florets. The bracts are variably narrow and pointed, duller than the florets in a dark yellow to golden brown with some white and translucence.
The five-pointed disc florets have petal lobes that recurve. A flowerhead is about 3 mm in diameter.
The inflorescence in picture has flowerheads not fully opened yet, still about cylindrical in shape. When in full bloom they are wider at the top, forming a cone- or funnel-shape.
Flowering of this species coincides with the typical Namaqualand season of panoramic colouring of the landscape at the end of winter and the beginning of spring (Le Roux, et al, 2005; Bond and Goldblatt, 1984; JSTOR; iNaturalist).
