Anaphalis margaritacea - Pearly Everlasting
Drought tolerant and adaptable to rocky, poor soil. Tiny yellow flowers are surrounded by white papery bracts, which have button-like appearance, clustered atop bluish-green foliage. Great for borders or mixing among more colorful companions. The undersides of the foliage have a woolly feel because they are covered with tiny hairs. This plant can become aggressive when in ideal growing conditions.
