Strong scent and interesting appearance.
Does not form its fluffy seed head till late in season, so should be easy to control.
Also has medicinal potential with pharmaceutical research being done.

Please see this thread for distinction from Pluchea odorata:
http://davesgarden.com/community/forums/t/1333802/

Conclusion (from thread):
If I look at the best -- comparable -- color pics from the USDA.
And allow for variations in growing conditions and maturity.
