This plant is mat-forming, thus great for a groundcover. It does not grow over 6" tall. It flowers starting in May and can continue through June. It seems to grow best in sandy and/or gravelly soil conditions. It is drought-tolerant.

It is native to the U.S. Blooms first appear in early spring and continue into late spring. The small tubular flowers are in flower heads that are in tight terminal clusters which resemble cat's paws, thus the name.
