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) and for fresh cutting for the vase. Blooms the first year, with an early spring sowing, from mid to late summer. Does well in pots.
