Snow Princess is cold tolerant and heat tolerant, she bloomed through the summer at the Dallas Arboretum and the University of Georgia trial garden. She is very vigorous so pair her with other vigorous.

Snow Princess is a "heavy drinker" and will prefer evenly moist soil. It will be quick to show drought stress, but should bounce back quickly once re-hydrated. In a hanging basket you should be prepared to water often, maybe more than once a day during warm weather. Plants are easier to keep moist when planted in large planters. Due to her water needs Snow Princess is ideal for use in larger planters. In containers an application of continuous release fertilizer at planting is best. To help maximize performance use applications of a well-balanced water-soluble fertilizer (according to package directions) starting in mid-summer.

Snow Princess will also perform well in the landscape where she will function as an annual, full sun, groundcover.

While plants shouldn't need to be trimmed back, if she is taking over your walkway or is looking less than her best a trim can be administered at anytime. Use a sharp pair of scissors or pruning shears as needed.

A yearly application of fertilizer or compost on garden beds and regular fertilization of plants in pots will help ensure the best possible performance.

If there's one new plant that should be on everyone's list, it's Snow Princess, a unique breakthrough in the genus for heat tolerance and extended season performance. This sterile Lobularia is extremely vigorous, and because it puts no energy into setting seed it has an incredibly long bloom time. Creates a great hanging basket or window box and is a perfect filler in combinations.

I am the landscape superintendent of a country club in coastal Wilmington, NC. Our club requires high quality seasonal color display beds that will perform all season long. I like to introduce new varieties in my designs that will meet our requirements. I was so impressed with Snow Princess that I purchased several flats for my house. I planted the Snow Princess behind a retaining wall in mostly sandy soil at the house. Snow Princess is thriving in our hot and humid summer and it kept up the bloom display until the fall. I want to thank Proven Winners for introducing such a fine plant.
