Cerastium Arvenese — Field chickweed that is often confused with common or mouse-eared chickweed. Its beautiful spring blooming white flowers are found under gambel oaks in native areas.
Artemisia frigida — this will be the replacement if I can find a supplier of it. The height though varies quite a bit and my intention was to have a low growing light colored plant. Its listed as one that some Boulder nurseries stock. I planted an Artemisia schmidtiana in the pollinator garden to add color in the winter as its semi-evergreen.
