Description from Prairie Moon Nursery: The late spring flowers look like tiny cat’s feet, thus the name. A member of the Aster family, Prairie Pussytoes are found across much of the Midwest and Northeast. USDA Hardiness zones: 3-7.  They may also be called Field Pussytoes.

Pussytoes usually are grown for their velvety leaves rather than the white to pale pink flower. Flowers will reach up to about a foot in height but the leaves grow at ground level.  Spreading by stolons, Pussytoes provide a good ground cover for dry areas such as rock gardens.  Parts of the plant are poisonous so deer and rabbits and other small animals won’t touch them.
