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.

  • Grew so well in my garden this year! We had an overly wet June (1.9 x the average June rainfall), and the Snow Princess in the large pot, where it could drain, grew much better than the one in the clayey ground. But as the season went on, the one in the pot still did very well, and the one in the ground caught up and surpassed it. It is now November 11, and we've had temps down to about 25-27 degrees F, and the Snow Princess looks great! But tonight I'm afraid, it's expected to be about 22 degrees, and it's probably done for. I sure will miss it, and the other flowers.

  • I bought 3 of these plants to put in 3 feet high patio tubs, in early May. They were quite straggly-looking with 3-5 stems on each plant. Now, in mid-August, they have reached over the edge of the pots right down to the patio, almost 3 feet down. They have also spread well over a foot wide. Flowers non-stop. The only drawback is they have drowned out the petunias and geraniums I planted with them. I only put one plant in each pot so now it looks very lop-sided and unbalanced.
    If I use them again, I would put maybe 3 in a pot around the edges, and something taller than geraniums in the middle.
    Lovely plant.

    Above Average Superior performance, among my favorites, would recommend to others.

  • I bought 2 of these maybe a month ago. (It's now July 8.) One went into a large pot with potting soil, a calibrachoa, a petunia, an African Daisy, and an annual vinca. The alyssum is HUGE! It's blooming away! The other alyssum was put into the ground in my overyly-clay black soil, but with mixed in potting soil, and maybe some other amendments and fertilizer.

    The plant in the ground is a fraction of the size of the potted one. We've had about twice the average amount of rain in June, and the pattern continues. It's also maybe 3 feet from a birdbath fountain, with leakage and splashing making the ground damper. Looks like the wet clay soil is a hinderance to the alyssum performing like its sister in the pot.

    Even so, my 'Snow Princess' alyssum in the ground is much bigger than the ones I bought in small cells or that came up from last year's seed falling in the ground.

    I'd buy this again!

  • This is my new favorite annual! A "must-have" for my flower beds, keep it well watered and it will bloom for you until frost.

  • I purchased one of these around Oct time in 2012. Planted it in a container (with some Miracle Grow container potting mix) and cannot say enough good things about it. It bloomed through our 2012-2013 winter (which was fairly mild) and then once spring came bloomed profusely all the way until about June when it finally succumbed to the summer heat. In full bloom it is absolutely stunning and I received many complements on it. I can honestly say it was the best $5.00 ever spent on a plant. It looked great for 8 months. It does trail very well and can get big. I had it in a 12 inch deep container but would probably put it in something taller. It has a beautiful trailing and mounding growth habit, so doesn't get leggy like some trailing plants do. My one big disappointment is I cannot find it locally this year. I guess will look for it in the spring.

  • Grew beautifully, even had a piece break off and take root, I just wish it came in more colors.
