One of the most popular of foliage perennials, this perennial forms a low cushion of ferny, silvery-grey leaves. In areas with humid summers, Silver Mound may benefit from a hard clipping as the tiny silver ball-like flowers appear. 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 containers. Divide every two to three years (in spring or fall) in order to maintain.
