Anaphalis margaritacea 'New Snow'

In my last garden, one of the plants which I liked very much was Anaphalis margaritacea.  I had grown it for several years and it had established itself in a large clump.  Its leaves are wooly and grey and its flowers charming in every way.  They worked very well as dried flowers too.  I have just the spot for it.....

It was only today as I read through the blog of a fellow IAVOM contributor who hails from New England, that I was reminded how much I miss this plant.  Joanna's web page is well worth exploring, and she has done some research on this and other plants from her area of the US.

I have even put up a request on my Gardening Club facebook page to ask if someone has this in their garden, and are willing to have a swap.....plants, home made bread, preserves etc on offer!!


  1. Thank you for sharing the link to my post! :) I actually have some seeds for the wild kind (not a garden cultivar). But if I remember correctly, you are in England right? I'm just not sure about the rules for shipping seeds internationally.

    1. Your post showed the plant growing wild, and some interesting ways to use it. It's best that I source the plants locally Joanna, but I am sure that US growers may well buy from your shop.

  2. Oh that looks like a charming plant Noelle. Good luck in your quest to locate a plant!
