Ozothamnus alpinus, commonly known as Alpine Everlasting, is a shrub in the family Asteraceae. It is native to alpine and subalpine areas in the states of New South Wales and Victoria in Australia.
It usually grows to between 0.75 and 1 metre high and has oblong leaves that are 4 to 10 mm long and 2 to 3 mm wide. These have glossy green upper surfaces, while underneath they are yellowish and covered with hairs.
The species was formally described in 1951 by Norman Wakefield based on a specimen collected by C. Walter at Mount Hotham in 1888. Wakefield gave it the name Helichrysum alpinum. In 1991 the species was transferred to the genus Ozothamnus.
The white flowers appear in small dense heads from December to March in the species native range. The pink or red outer bracts stand out when the flowers are in bud.
