Antennaria dioica ‘Rubra’


Pink Pussy-toes

USDA Zone: 1-9

Plant number: 1.043.050


A tough plant especially suited to hot sunny locations and poor, dry soil. This forms a very low, creeping mat of tiny, bright silvery-grey leaves. Short stems of fuzzy pink flowers appear in late spring. Perfect for the sunny rock garden, as a small groundcover, or for between paving stones. Also excellent growing in rock walls or in alpine trough gardens. Very drought tolerant. Easily divided in spring by simply ripping the clump apart into smaller pieces. Cut or mow off flower stems after blooming. Combines beautifully with any of the pink or purple Creeping Thyme selections. A North American native wildflower.
