Comments about High Country Gardens Antenaria dimorpha Boulder Mountain, UT:
I got this plant from its original collector, John Stireman. It forms a dense mat of small rosettes, but unlike other pussytoes, this variety's flowers flower just above the surface of the rosettes, so you don't have to cut them back after flowering. This plant looks good year round.

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
