Cerastrium tormentosa has the common name Snow in Summer.
It has densly hairy leaves giving it a silver appearance and white flowers which cover the plant. It loves full sun and well drained soil and tumbles over container edges and borders, in fact its a very strong grower and quickly forms a dense mat. It is fully hardy (unless sat on repeatedly by ducks), doesn't appear to have any problems with pests and diseases and originates from Italy.
