Plant Description

The Shale Barrens Pussytoes is restricted to dry, shaly barrens of the mountains of Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia, and Delaware where it roots into rock crevices and forms thick mats of small silver leaves. Spreading slowly by runners, over time it will form beautiful silvery mats in dry, partly shady, poor soil. In spring, silvery white, pussy toe shaped clusters of fuzzy flowers appear on stalks up to 15 inches tall. Alumroot, Firepink, and Columbine would be natural companions.
