How do you grow and care for Silver Licorice, Helichrysum petiolatum?

Silver licorice is a high light plant and it gives a hint of that by its woolly leaves. It likes a well-draining soil. In rich soil it will grow larger and faster, but won’t be quite as silvery. It grows upright at first but then drops down and trails beautifully. Keep evenly moist but not soggy wet.
