Hieracium lanatum var. tomentosum | Woolly Hawkweed
Woolly Hawkweed, also known as Silver Hawkweed and Hairy Hawkweed, is unlike the rest of the Hawkweed family in that it’s not crazy invasive, which makes it one of our favorites in the family. The fuzzy, silvery spoon-shaped leaves make a rosette up to 15″ and the bright yellow flowers that are dandelion look-alikes flower in summer, and will continue flowering with dead-heading.
The grey-green felted foliage is the primary reason this plant is grown.
Grows best in a sunny, well-drained rock garden settings with plenty of sunshine.
