Ground covers, Perennials
Rounded, pale green, lobed leaves have a silvery look; after rain or overhead watering, they hold beads of water on their surfaces. Summer flowers are yellowish green, in large branched clusters, individually inconspicuous but attractive as a mass; good cut flowers.
Useful for edgings in shady places, as ground cover, and as soothing contrast to brightly colored flowers. Can take full sun in cool-summer climates.
