Antennaria solitaria, or Solitary Pussytoes, is an herbaceous perennial wildflower native to the eastern southern states. It is typically found in forests or woodlands on dry, often poor, soil. It is common to find the plant growing wild in the mountains or Piedmont, but it is rare to find in along the coast. As its common name suggests, this species differs from other pussytoes by the solitary flowering head atop the flowering stalk versus two or more flowering heads in all other Antennaria species.

The plant prefers full sun or light shade and average to dry well-drained acidic soil and will flourish in poor soil that contains sand, rocky material, or clay. It does not do well in fertile, humusy soils, particularly if drainage is poor. It can be difficult to cultivate if soil requirements are not met, but in optimum conditions, it can spread by stolons to form an attractive ground cover.

No known diseases or insect pest issues.
