About This Species
Grow me instead of Baby’s Breath
Pearly everlasting is an easy to care for perennial that thrives in hot, sunny spots – particularly disturbed sites. It produces slender green foliage and papery white flowers with yellow centres that bloom from early summer to fall. Appearance is quite variable depending on the site – this plant can be anywhere from 20 – 90 cm tall with leaves ranging in length from 2- 15 cm long and 0.5 – 2 cm wide.
When selecting non-invasive plants for your garden, be sure to look for those that are suitable for your location, including moisture requirements, hardiness zone, and avoidance of known bear attractants among other factors.
