Clump-forming herbaceous perennial with many small, clustered together, white-silver colored flower heads that have white bracts. Plants grow 2 feet tall and do well in full sun to light shade in moisture retentive soils but well drained. Attractive silver-green leaves and stems.
Anaphalis margaritacea is great for dried flower arrangements (Cut just before flowers are mature and hang upside down in a dry, dark, open, airy place), crafts and for fresh cutting for the vase. Suitable for dyeing.
Blooms the first year, with an early spring sowing, from mid to late summer. Does well in pots.
