Antennaria plantaginifolia-Pussytoes

Pussytoes is so named for its delicate, button-like flowers, which resemble a cat’s paw and rise in clusters above its velvety, gray-green foliage. This low-growing native slowly spreads to form a colony, serving as a soft and attractive groundcover. It is highly adaptable and more tolerant of moisture than its cousin Antennaria neglecta, with broader leaves and a slightly taller stature. It is a larval host for the American Painted Lady butterfly.
