If you need a small-scale groundcover for a sunny garden niche that's beset by drought and rabbits, than field pussytoes is just the ticket. It's an adorably thing, forming ground-hugging mats of fuzzy silver-gray leaves that are studded in late spring with even fuzzier "pussytoe" flower/seed heads on 6- to 12-inch stems. It also works well in flowering lawns.
