A.G.M Anaphalis triplinervis is an excellent plant to use in your border, to act as the perfect foil with its grey foliage, for neighbouring plants to show off their bright flowers to their true potential. Particularly effective with red or blue flowered adjoining plants.
The pale grey-green leaves, which are white and woolly underneath are narrow and elliptical in their shape with their colouring making them stand out from the crowd. In summer they produce numerous, lustrous papery white flowers with yellow centres.
This low-growing perennial at 60 cm is perfect for either dried or cut flower arrangements.
Anaphalis's name comes from the classical Greek name for another of the everlastings; this leads to its common name of "Pearl everlasting" Grow in a free draining soil in full sun, and it certainly will be with you for a long time.
