Perhaps Antennaria sp., like A. plantaginifolia

Leafmebe thanks! How did you go about identifying this one? I tried every kind of descriptor and combination of descriptors in google and never once got a similar picture

I recognize the growth habit as I've encountered Antennaria spp. before. It would be quite difficult to identify with just the basal rosette if you haven't previously encountered it. Easy to use websites I enjoy: MinnesotaWildflowers.info, gobotany.newenglandwild.org, and bonap.org(for location records)
