Antennaria Pussytoes Red Antennaria Dioica Rubra is a low growing, carpeting perennial ground cover that can be started from seeds. Antennaria forms a dense carpet of tiny silver-grey leaves that are covered by taller stems of fuzzy dark-pink or cherry-red flowers. Antennaria is the evergreen, flowering ground cover that blooms in spring and summer tolerating light foot traffic. Because of its foot-traffic tolerance, Antennaria Red Pussytoes can be used as a lawn substitute in small areas.
Antennaria makes a great plant for edging, pathways, or stone walls, and it is outstanding for growing in spaces between stepping stones or as a patio plant. Antennaria Dioica grows well in full sun and very well-drained, dry to medium soil, tolerating both dry and moist conditions.
