    Snow Princess is a new release from Proven Winners® for 2010, best described as a trailing Alyssum. The mounding white blooms have great staying power, require little maintenance, and have a beautiful fragrance. 

  • Garden Performance
    Snow Princess will put on a great show all season. It's more heat tolerant than regular alyssum, but watch out, it's a hearty drinker, so we don't recommend growing it in small containers. It is a vigorous grower, so be careful with your combinations, as it will outgrow its neighbours!
    Fertilizer: Moderate feeder, any all purpose, compost, etc.
