Anaphalis triplinervis

Triple-nerved pearly everlasting

Anaphalis triplinervis, commonly called pearly everlasting, is native to the Himalayas. 

It differs from A. margaritacea in being more compact with slender stems and long leaves with three to five main veins. 

It's easily grown in average, well-drained soils in full sun to part shade and prefers soil that is consistently moist in summer. The foliage tends to depreciate rapidly if soils are allowed to dry out. 

It’s widely used in dried flower arrangements. Harvest the stems before the yellow centre is visible and hang them upside down until they dry.
