Anaphalis margaritacea, Pearly Everlasting

Pearly Everlasting is one of those plants you expect to be a pure prairie plant because of its size and dry soil tolerance, but it is at home in the north, northeast, and Mississippi corridor of the Minnesota. It is a plant that is at home in the Great Lakes and New England States and much of the Inter Mountain and West Coast. Strange indeed.

Bloom: white, July through September

Height: 1 to 3 feet

Conditions: sun to pt sun, well-draining medium to dry soils
