Wheather it is spilling out of pots, making a low splash of silver in the front of borders, or cascading over the edge of raised beds, Wooly Stemodia is sure to impress with its velvety and silvery leaves. The foliage does have a soft felted look and feel and is dotted with small purple flowers. Low growing and mat-forming, it is drought and heat tolerant and it is not browsed by deer. Wooly Stemodia occasionally survives the winter in our garden. It grows best in a hot sunny spot with good drainage and can be used much the same way as Silver Falls Dichondra.
