I found this plant on a clearance shelf and really thought the silvery grey leaves were pretty. Planted it and it grew into a lovely mound of miniature daisies. It winter-killed but apparently spread some seeds around. After another winter, I found 3 tiny plants coming up. I didn't recognize them at first and almost pulled them out, thinking they were weeds. Another winter has gone by and now the largest of the 3 is about 4" in diameter at the base. It is a very pretty plant!
