(aka: Hieracium pilosella) This superb, surface-spreading groundcover has long been one of our favorites. The felty, silver-grey foliage makes small rosettes that spread by above-ground stolons...slowly for us, although some references indicate reports to the contrary. In early summer, the mats are topped with delightful, 1" light yellow flowers on 8" tall stalks. We use this in the woodland garden to provide dramatic accents around the base of other plants...not bothered by heat and humidity!
