Liquid extracts are made into a commercially available spray. This plant thrives in dry conditions. The leaves are very ornamental, growing in a full rosette or clump form. The leaves are silvery grey with a light feathery lacy shape. In early summer many stems produce lots of small white daisy shaped blooms with yellow centers. They may sometimes self sow but not considered invasive. This is a light dependant germinator. Start in small pots or flats in cool soil by pressing lightly into the mix and not covering.
