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!
It's new, so we haven't grown it,
ever, but is sounds like a easy flower to grow
and keep in bloom.
Be careful about watering, and one of our
sales reps suggests growing it only on its own
(ie no combination containers). We should have
more ideas next year!
Fertilizer: Moderate feeder, any
all purpose, compost, etc.
