2" tall x 15-18" wide. A distinctive looking groundcover, Pterocephalus is a marvelous species closely related to Scabiosa (Pincushion Flower). It grows as a mat of attractive gray-green crinkled leaves and blooms from late spring through summer with large mauve-pink flowers followed by furry, silvery-pink seed heads. The dense, evergreen foliage tolerates light foot traffic and is a wonderful choice as crack filler in flagstone and pavers. Native to the mountains of Morocco. Introduced to the trade by Laporte Ave. Nursery. Low fertility, well-drained soil.
Flat of 32 plants will cover 40-48 square feet when planted together.
