It would be better if we could see the entire plant and detail of leaves.

From what I can see in the photo I would say your plant is not Sea Myrtle (Baccharis halimifolia) - front and back of leaf.

I had to google pearly everlasting vs cudweed...
http://www.mpgnorth.com/field-guide/asteraceae/common-pearly...

I think cudweed...
Still worth growing... Said to be host plant for American lady...

Edit:
Never mind... Sweet everlasting and cudweed seem to be synonymous.

Hi,
You're mixing up the common names of different plants... Pearly everlasting is Anaphalis margaritacea while sweet everlasting/cudweed is Pseudognaphalium obtusifolium, not synonymous - it's important to keep common names straight too.

I read "pearly everlasting" rather than sweet everlasting.... The first time through.
I went back and re-read the post... Hence the edit.

You misread my post just as I misread the other.

My comment was that sweet everlasting was the same thing as cudweed.

Sorry, I was confused by pearly everlasting being brought up, and did misread it.
