With the protection of a fence or building to its north and the benefit of a well-drained soil, Silver Goundsel makes a delicate perennial in zones 7 and south. A silver-leaved daisy from Argentina, it looks terrific in borders, color beds or containers. Its finely dissected silvery foliage is almost white due to its thick covering of pubescence. Occasionally displayed, are this plant’s flowers, interesting rayless daisies of creamy white or soft lemon that are an excellent nectar source for butterflies.
