Rock Creek Area

Pink Pussy Toes (Antennaria rosea ssp. confinus). Antennaria rosea is dioecious (has male and female reproductive organs), but since most of the individuals are female, most bear flower heads with pistillate flowers. It often produces fertile seeds, but most plants are clones. Plants are sometimes fertilized with pollen from other Antennaria species, which may bring new genes into an A. rosea population, increasing the genetic diversity amongst the clones.
