A most unusual and charming semi-evergreen groundcover, this plant keeps a low profile until April (in NC) when it sends up 4-6" long stems with clusters of white fuzzy flowers resembling its common namesake, a cat's toes. This plant thrives in lean, dry soil, spreading slowly by rhizomes to form a lovely weed-suppressing colony. 


Also known as Everlasting or Mouse Ear, Pussy toes are a host plant to the American Lady butterfly. Attracts a variety of pollinators.
