I think what you're looking for is "Sweet Alyssum", "Candytuft", or the white variety of "Phlox". These are condsidered very old-fashioned in America and it's hard to find plants. You have to start from seeds. (04/03/2008)

Mmmm, have you considered rockcress or snow in summer? Check out this web page for some links to ground covers.
Try looking for "rare and old plants" on Google. I think she's right about Alyssum, but I would think you could find the plants somewhere. Good luck and God bless you. (04/04/2008)
I don't think it's alyssum because they don't have grey furry leaves. I don't know if lamb's ear gets flowers, but they definitely have the grey furry leaves and spread as a ground cover. (04/04/2008)

The plant you are looking for is called white rock, we also had it at the family garden. I am trying to find some my self. That is how I came across this page. (04/05/2008)
You might be talking about lambs ear. They describe what you are talking about. (04/12/2008)
It seems you're talking about a plant called lambs ear. It is grey, soft, and velvety and spreads fast. (04/12/2008)
