About This Plant

Sun/part shade; deciduous. An easy groundcover with attractive moon-white leaves that can create pale pools of silver in the garden. It performs well in pots, draping to the ground. Silver ponyfoot needs good drainage. It can spread fairly rapidly under constant irrigation. Woolly Stemodia provides a similar effect for drier settings.

Maintenance

Foliage tends to die back after freezing weather.
