Rubra Pussytoes

 

Looking for a tough plant for those hot, sunny locations and poor, dry soil? This North American native wildflower forms a very low, creeping mat of tiny, bright silvery-gray leaves that back short stems of fuzzy pink flowers in late spring. Perfect for the sunny rock garden or for between paving stones.
