Lysiosepalum is a genus of five species found in southern and south-eastern parts of Western Australia. The genus is closely related to Guichenotia, Thomasia and Lasiopetaum. Lysiosepalum involucratum is the most widely cultivated species. It is a low compact bushy shrub with linear to slightly ovate grey-green leaves about 10mm to 25mm long. The leaves are hairy. Masses of pink to mauve flowers are produced in spring. The flower petals are very small and it is the sepals that provide the flower colour.
