Cerastium tomentosum, also known as Snow-in-Summer or Mouse-ear Chickweed, is a low-growing, mat-forming perennial plant that is native to Europe and Asia.
This plant is characterized by its silvery-gray, fuzzy leaves that resemble mouse ears, and its profusion of small, white, star-shaped flowers that bloom in late spring or early summer. The flowers are held on delicate stems that rise above the foliage and can reach up to 6-8 inches (15-20 cm) in height. The plant typically spreads by runners and can form a dense groundcover.
Cerastium tomentosum is relatively low maintenance and easy to grow. It prefers a sunny to partially shaded location with well-drained soil and is tolerant of drought and heat once established. It is often used as a groundcover in rock gardens, borders, and dry, sunny areas, and can also be used to stabilize slopes and prevent erosion. It is attractive to bees and butterflies and is also deer resistant.
