A fragrant lacy plant grown for it’s silvery foliage. It is also a nice accent to fresh or dried flower arrangements or in containers of annuals. This plant tolerates some drought some salt and will grow in moist soil but prefers a well-drained or sandy soil with a pH of neutral to slightly alkaline (6.8-7.7)Certainly one of the most popular of foliage perennials this forms a low cushion of ferny silvery-grey leaves. In areas with humid summers Silver Mound benefits from a hard clipping just as the tiny silver ball-like flowers appear usually in mid to late June. Plants will regrow quickly and remain attractive all season long. Good for hot dry sites. Nice edging plant also combines well with other perennials in tubs or mixed containers. Divide every two to three years (in spring or fall) in order to maintain good vigour.
