Pussytoes White (Antennaria Dioica) - Starting Antennaria Dioica seeds is a great way to establish a large amount of these perennial ground cover plants. If you are looking for a durable plant that can survive hot, dry, full sun, and poor soil conditions, than you have found the right ground cover plant. Antennaria Dioica is also known as Pussytoes, and it forms a very low, creeping mat of tiny, bright silvery-grey leaves with fuzzy white flowers which will bloom towards the end of spring.
Antennaria seeds can be started indoors 6 - 8 weeks before the last expected frost or directly started outdoors after frost danger has passed. Pussytoes seeds should be pressed into the soil but not cover. Keep the ground cover seeds moist until germination occurs. Antennaria ground cover plants work well in sunny locations including: rock gardens, mass ground cover plantings, in between flagstones, and on top of rock walls. Simply plant the Antennaria seeds, where you want a beautiful carpet of drought tolerant ground cover plants.
