Plush ever-silver mats of gorgeous feathery foliage will thrive in dry gardens with good drainage, improving and spreading modestly through the years. Golden button flowers appear for a short time in summer. Introduced from Southeastern Turkey in the 1950's by Peter Davis, this has become a quiet classic in the Denver area. Roll out the carpet - this time it's silver! Read more here.

Tips from the pros: Does best in lean soil. For best appearance, avoid overhead watering. After establishment, water sparingly to avoid excess growth. Can be pruned back hard regularly - will come back on woody stems following pruning. Cut back any thinning spots close to ground level for dense re-sprouting.
