Neutral smiln32 On Dec 4, 2004, smiln32 from Oklahoma City, OK (Zone 7a) wrote:

This is a herbaceous perennial plant. It is native to the U.S. and is almost always found in dense masses. 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.

Pussytoes is a very common plant of open and wooded terrain. Its small sage-green leaves form mats, sometimes several feet in diameter.

Dried flowers remain on the plant for a considerable period of time. Pussytoes seed heads explode in a fluff.
