Snow in Summer

Tiny, star-shaped flowers cluster together to form a blanket of snowy white in the late-spring season. Grows only 3-6" tall, making it the ideal ground cover. Place it at the front of a border, under a sunlit stand of trees, even mixed in with taller perennials in a decorative container garden. Spreads quickly and cascades readily over walls and rockeries. Silvery foliage is just as attractive as the plentiful blooms and blends nicely into the ground cover, making it look thicker and fuller. Plant Snow in Summer in well-drained soil and full sun for best results. Carefree and deer resistant, it grows quickly and requires little to no maintenance. Hardy in Zones 3-7.
