Athanasia pinnata

Athanasia pinnata Athanasia pinnata

One of my favorite discoveries! Stunning silvery-white foliage combined with a beautiful form make this South African shrub a year round garden highlight even from quite a distance! Soft & tactile, the upright 3-4’ stalks emerge gracefully from the base. Topping it off, dense 4” chartreuse umbels appear in late Spring, turning gold in Summer and rusty in Fall – to die for when planted in front of darker foliage. Easy & carefree, just provide excellent drainage and not too much water. To 4-5’ wide.
