Antennaria neglecta (Field Pussytoes) is a stoloniferous, mat-forming perennial forming a carpet of small, fine-textured, silvery basal leaves adorned with a single conspicuous vein. In spring to early summer, the plant sends up erect stems, up to 12 in. (30 cm), boasting clusters of small, fuzzy, white flower heads. The flowers attract painted lady butterflies. The female flowers are followed by tufts of awned fruits that look frothy and resemble small dandelions. Easy, accommodating, and resistant to drought, Antennaria neglecta is a great small-scale groundcover for dry locations in both sun and shade. A cute-looking little plant for the rock garden or rocky slopes..

  • Grows up to 6-12 in. tall and wide (15-30 cm). Will spread by stolons to form dense colonies
  • Performs best in full sun or part shade in in lean, gritty to rocky, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils. Grows poorly in fertile, humus-rich soils, particularly if soils are not sharply drained.
  • Perfect as a groundcover for rock gardens, for rocky slopes, prairies and meadows.
  • Generally pest and disease free.
  • Propagate by division or by seed.
  • Native to North America.
