Pussy-toe (Antennaria plantaginifolia)

(aka Plantain-leaved pussy-toes, Woman-tobacco, Pussy-toe)
These unique looking plants grow only a few inches high with stalks that produce small fuzzy looking pink flowers. The stalks can range in height depending on the species. As the ground cover spreads, the new growth is a silver color and changes to green with age. Pussytoes grow well in poor soils and some shade, making them ideal for rock gardens or borders. These striking little plants are a delightful addition to your garden.
