Silvery white petals that make up the buttonlike flower heads and their woolly white or silvery leaves give these hardy perennials the common name of Pearl or Pearly Everlasting. Excellent fresh or dried flowers. Cut just before flowers mature. Plant in well-drained sunny location where their light color can contrast with darker foliage or brighter flowers. Most tolerate poor soil, heat and drought. Divide clumps every three or four years.
