|Dense mat-forming perennial with fuzzy, lance-shaped, silver to grey-green leaves, to 4 1/2 inches long, held in rosettes. Erect, short stalks bear spikes of woolly pale pink flowers, 1/2 inch long, in cotton ball-like clusters. Excellent in a border with roses or perennials. Grown primarily for foliage effect. Leaves become soggy and water-logged in excessive rain. Needs well drained site, prefering area slightly dry. Easy for beginners, prolific enough for those who must send visitors home with something from the garden!
