Antennaria lanata is a North American species of flowering plant in the daisy family known by the common name woolly pussytoes. It is native to western Canada (Alberta, British Columbia) and the northwestern United States (Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, and extreme northern California (Del Norte and Trinity Counties)).

Antennaria lanata is a small herb up to 20 cm (8 inches) tall. Leaves are covered with thick white hairs resembling wool. The plant is dioecious, meaning that male and female flowers are borne on separate plants. The plant grows in protected alpine and subalpine sites in mountainous areas.
