Cerastium tomentosum

Cerastium tomentosum
Common name snow in summer
Family caryophyllaceae
Life cycle perennial
Flowers white (late spring)
Size 2-3"
Light sun
Cultural notes well-drained soil

Woolly-silverleaved groundcover. Likes to sprawl itself across our stone paths. Looks best when in bloom, with pretty little white flowers, but makes for a nice shimmery effect the rest of the year too.

This plant used to grow in our garden, but it slipped away...
