The dense, whitish foliage of Pussytoes makes an excellent native ground cover in hot, rocky, dry locations or in dappled woodland areas. Children love its unique furry “flowers” that look and feel like a kitten’s toes. As well as being attractive, the fuzz is necessary to reflect heat and light to keep the plant cool in the heat of the sun. In the past, the plant was used for treatment of bruises and snakebites as well as for numerous other complaints.
