Giving OTHER plants an INFERIORITY COMPLEX. White flowers appear all season; strongly trailing plants; low maintenance; perfect filler plant in combinations. Considered a best seller! A 2006 "Best of the Best" award at the University of Georgia. Deadheading not necessary. Trails up to 36". Bloom from planting to frost.

Unlike most plants, Sutera will not wilt when drought stressed. Before the plant shows signs of wilting it will drop both the flowers and the buds on the plant. It takes about 2 weeks for the plant to come back into bloom after it has been drought stressed. To maintain constant bloom you will either need to monitor the plant closely and water before the soil gets too dry or you could plant Sutera with a plant that does wilt. Some good plants to consider are verbena, coleus, petunias etc. These companion plants will serve as indicator plants to let you know that the Sutera is dry and should help you avoid having the plant dropping blooms and buds due to drought stress.

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

Description
 
In summer when you're outside and get caught in a blizzard, you don't need to call The Weather Channel. It's only me. All those fluffy white things? They're flowers. And they're growing on long, long slender branches. Look closely and you can probably see the green leaves. Really. It's not a snowstorm. It's a Snowstorm® Winners plant that's an annual except in zones 9-11. I grow best in full sun to part shade, and hanging baskets, combination containers and window boxes are my specialties. Not frozen ice, nice white flowers. Honest. Snowstorm® Giant Snowflake® Sutera cordata 'Danova906' USPP 17,886, Can 2,861
