Deer Resistant Snow

Snow in Summer Silver Carpet, Cerastium tomentosum 'Silver Carpet', adds excellent spring color to your rock gardens, or as a border plant.

The snow-like mass of little white flowers appears in early spring, and the frosty white, woolly foliage is stunning all season long.

This plant flowers profusely and, when in full bloom, the mounded plant resembles a mound of snow, hence its name.

'Silver Carpet' is deer resistant and also can handle light foot traffic. 'Silver Carpet' is a spreading, mat-like perennial that is perfect for the rock garden, borders, or carpeting any sunny spots.

Cerastium tomentosum tolerates drought and will grow in dry to moist soils. Suitable soil is well-drained, loamy or sandy with a neutral to slightly alkaline pH.

Divide in spring or fall if necessary. Trim plant back after flowering to keep it neat and compact. This plant can also become invasive, so it is recommended to shear it back after flowering.
