Antennaria dioica or Pussy-toes’ attractive tiny, fuzzy, narrow leaves remain silver in color throughout the year. It has balls of white to pink flowers at the ends of the stems from May to June.  An herbaceous, semi-evergreen perennial with an upright spreading habit. It brings an extremely fine and delicate texture to the garden composition and should be used to full effect.

This is a relatively low maintenance plant, and does not require much pruning, except when necessary, such as to remove dieback. Deer don’t particularly care for this plant and will usually leave it alone in favor of tastier treats.  Consider Pussy-toes for mass planting, rock, alpine or fairy gardens, border edging or for a groundcover.
