Snow in summer grows to be about 6 inches tall. It has greyish green leaves and in the late spring to early summer it blooms bright white flowers. This plant does not thrive in hot environments and does best in agricultural zones 3 through 7. Snow in summer is drought tolerant and will rust with excessive overhead watering, and requires sandy, well draining soil.
- A non-flowering snow in summer plant might seem a mystery, but these short lived plants need dividing annually and well-draining soil to perform properly.
- Great masses of white blooms on silvery gray foliage are the hallmark of the snow in summer plant.
- The narrow leaves are evergreen and the plant will produce a 6-inch tall mat. In some climates, the flowers will self-seed if not removed from the plant.
