Description: This pretty wildflower blooms in the spring and provides lots of interest to sunny dry rocky sites or rock gardens. With pretty creamy blooms and lovely silvery foliage that both change in color as the season progresses. Cream turns to pink as the flowers mature into seed heads on coppery stems while the foliage also takes on a pink hue. Try this wildflower in rock gardens or in alpine containers. Plant where there is snow cover in the winter or mulch lightly over the winter in the Chinook zone.

Found in Nature: Sunny dry sites, rocky slopes and ridges.

Distribution: Montane to Sub-Alpine

Notes: Available as larger potted stock - pick up only.
