Cudweed is an annual wildflower (weed) that has a fuzzy, silvery-green leaves and nondescript wiite or brownish flower bracts. A common weed in the yard, propogates readily from seed and will form clumps if given enough room. Sweet everlasting (G. obtusifolium), also known as rabbit tobacco, is a bit taller and has narrower leaves. Plants grow on roadsides and disturbed sites. Don't pamper cudweed, no fertilizer is needed, and will harm this plant.
