Antennaria parvifolia Nutt.
Small-leaf pussytoes, Low everlasting, Nuttall's pussytoes
Synonyms: Antennaria aprica
USDA Symbol: ANPA4
USDA Native Status: Native to U.S.
From a small, grayish basal rosette rises an erect, sparsely-leaved flower stalk with clusters of small, rayless, whitish flower heads.
Some plants in this species produce seed in the usual manner, by fertilization of eggs in the ovary; others do not require fertilization. The tightly clustered basal leaves and the near absence of dark bases on the bracts of the flower heads help distinguish Nuttalls Pussytoes from other members of this large genus.
