Silver Kisses Mount Atlas Daisy

Anacyclus depressus 'Silberkissen'

A charming alpine plant with small, white daisy flowers blushed with red undersides in mid-summer. Forms a low carpet of very fine, ferny silvery, gray-green foliage. Very drought tolerant, once established. Not a long-lived plant, but will self-seed where happy. Best in a rock wall garden, containers, or as a groundcover.
