This plant performs to its optimum when grown in lean, gritty to rocky, dry to medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. It does not do well in fertile, humusy soils, particularly if drainage is poor. In optimum growing conditions, however, it will spread by stolons to form an attractive ground cover.
Antennaria plantaginifolia, commonly called pussytoes amongst other names is a stoloniferous, mat-forming plant with all of the leaves and flower stalks being woolly and grayish in colour. Fuzzy, whitish flower heads tinged with pink bloom in spring. Flowers stand above the leaves stems rising to 25cm high from a basal rosette of leaves. Useful as a small area ground cover in rock gardens, rocky slopes, open woodland areas and also excellent as a cut flower as it flowers with cutting from spring often into autumn. Plants grow vigorously. In cooler areas the leaves tend to die back but return in spring. Plants are easily split.
