ANTENNARIA rosea (dioica). Northern California to Alaska. Pussytoes. The antennarias are matting perennials closely related to the strawflowers, common on higher open slopes and flats of our western mountains. They have small closely packed, oval leaves, covered with whitish wool. Clusters of chaffy flower heads are borne on short stems above the foliage in summer. Flower color varies from creamy white to pale pink in the typical forms. Nyewood is distinguished by rather bright pink flowers. These are pleasant, easily grown plants for rock and container gardens, even potentially useful as a small-scale ground and bank cover. Sun, reasonably well drained soil, moderate to occasional watering. Hardy to below 0oF.
