Anaphalis margaritacea 

‘New Snow’ (Neuschnee)

Pearly everlasting

Grey and silver leaved plants are usually associated with sunny, rocky places in the drier parts of the world. This Anaphalis is North American, it dislikes drying out and tolerates partial shade. 

It's a clump-forming, compact plant with grey -green leaves that are white and woolly underneath. The attractive foliage is accompanied by a profusion of tiny, daisy-like yellow flower heads surrounded by papery 'everlasting' white bracts.  

Blooming from July onwards the flowers are excellent for both cutting and drying. 

These plants spread by rhizomes and seed and are  extremely useful if you want something grey leaved in damp soil or to lighten partial shade.
