Pearly Everlasting (Anaphalis margaritacea)
The stems and elongated leaves of Pearly Everlasting are covered with white hairs. Clustered at the top of erect stems, the tiny yellow flowers are enclosed by white papery bracts, often mistaken for petals. The overall appearance is a pearly mound; a nice shape and color for a garden edge. Pearly Everlasting is drought tolerant as it prefers full sun and dry, even rocky or poor soil conditions. Moderate shade and medium soils are also tolerated.
