Field Pussytoe Antennaria neglecta


Pussytoes are so named because the shape of their flowers look like tiny cat’s feet. Their soft silvery leaves are perhaps their most attractive attribute. Along with white sage, it is among the few silver colored plants on the prairie. Often times growing on dry hillsides amongst pasqe flowers and prairie smoke it is a hearty resident of dry and windy locations.

They can be used to form a ground cover for areas that receive light foot traffic, and are also important pollinator plants for the American Painted Lady butterfly!
