Pussytoes - Antennaria plantaginifolia

Regular price $10.00

Shipping calculated at checkout.

Phonetic: an-ten-AIR-ee-uh plan-tah-JIN-ih-foh-lee-uh

Pussytoes are usually grown for their velvety leaves rather than the white to pale pink flower. The late spring flowers look like tiny cat's feet, thus the name. These flowers will reach up to about a foot in height, but the leaves grow at ground level. Spreading by rhizomes, Pussytoes provide a good ground cover for dry areas such as rock gardens.
