Caring for Pearly Everlasting

Pearly everlasting plants are drought tolerant. Watering causes the stolons to spread, so if you want just a small stand of the plant, withhold water and don’t fertilize. This plant will easily colonize without fertilization. In most cases, fertilizing will cause pearly everlasting problems such as unwanted spreading.
