Antennaria dioica

Pussy-toes
Asteraceae (Compositae)
Perennials

Native to Europe, North America, and northern Asia. Forms inch-high mats of woolly foliage that slowly spread among rocks, between paving stones, or at the front of a border. Furry puffs of tiny flowers are pinkish white in the basic species, deep pink in ‘Rubra’, and rose-pink in ‘Rosea’. Withstands some foot traffic and is extremely hardy to cold. ‘Rubra’ is especially pretty in alpine trough gardens or tucked between boulders in a summer rock garden.
