Pearly Everlasting is a great dried flower (hence the name), is a food source and host to American Lady Butterfly caterpillars, and has incredible medicinal qualities. This native wildflower is also a hardy, drought tolerant perennial that’s easy to grow, and that’s why we love it!

According to Edible and Medicinal Plants of the West, Native Americans used Pearly Everlasting to treat tuberculosis and expel intestinal worms. The Chippewas used it as a smudge for treating paralysis and the Mohawk used an infusion of the flowers to treat asthma. It is currently used by herbalists as an antihistamine to relieve swollen mucous membranes.

Plants for a Future also referenced Pearly Everlasting as a remedy for diarrhea, dysentery and pulmonary affections. A poultice of the flowers or the whole plant is applied to burns, sores, ulcers, bruises, swellings and rheumatic joints. An infusion of the plant is steamed and inhaled in the treatment of headaches.

Yellow, gold, green and brown dyes can be obtained from the plant. Also interesting, Pearlies have been used as an incense in baby cradles (Plants for a Future).

Often found growing on gravelly roadsides, Pearly Everlasting is not picky about soil. It can grow in both sunny and partially shady locations.

Sowing Instructions

Sow seed indoors 4-8 weeks before last frost. Transplant outside after danger of frost has passed.

My Notes RE Bartering:

We are interested in bartering for organic or homegrown/homespun yarn, or other homegrown natural fibers that we can use for natural dying. We would also barter for honey, perennial fruit, nut, medicinal seeds or plants we don't have on hand. Other offers will also be considered.

You may scroll down to the Product Enquiry form to inquire about bartering with them and possibly setting up arrangements for a trade. All barters are facilitated privately between the parties involved. Barter at your own risk.
