My Pink Pussytoes was only a very tiny patch in spring of 2015. It went crazy this summer, expanding to more then ten times its original size! I did not, however, have very many blooms. This was disappointing because I had never seen pink blooms before (I have had the white Antennaria for years). I was happy, however, that the EXTREME amount of Painted Lady caterpillars that took up residence in the spring on other Antennarias I have were not seen much on the Antennaria rosea. Looking forward to more blooms next year.
