If the name reminds Paul of antlers on reindeer it certainly reminds me of my wife who is called by her many Artemisia which is the common for the official name of Artemis (Diana in Latin). Because Artemis was the Greek goddess of hunting it might have something to do with this plant looking like antlers on reindeer which was widely hunted in the ancient times. I will look at the Wikipedia later.

I always thought this was a form of cineraria. Silver dust. I have got quite a few of them in my garden. Are they one and the same thing?
