Estimated Delivery Date: - .

Snow in Summer 'Yo Yo' is a delightful perennial groundcover known for its profusion of white flowers and silvery foliage. This cultivar of Cerastium tomentosum is especially valued for its compact growth habit and its ability to thrive in challenging conditions.

Characteristics:

  • Height: Typically grows to about 4-6 inches.
  • Spread: Spreads to approximately 12-18 inches, forming a dense mat.
  • Flowers: Produces small, star-shaped, pure white flowers that bloom in late spring to early summer.
  • Foliage: Features narrow, lance-shaped, silvery-gray leaves that are densely covered with fine hairs, giving them a soft, fuzzy texture.

Growing Conditions:

  • Light: Prefers full sun but can tolerate partial shade.
  • Soil: Thrives in well-drained soils and is particularly well-suited to sandy or rocky soils. It is tolerant of poor soil conditions.
  • Watering: Drought-tolerant once established. Requires moderate watering, with care taken to avoid waterlogged conditions.
  • Hardiness Zones: USDA zones 3-7.

Care and Maintenance:

  • Pruning: Trim back after flowering to maintain shape and encourage dense growth. Regular trimming can prevent the plant from becoming too leggy.
  • Fertilizing: Generally does not require much fertilization. A light application of a balanced fertilizer in early spring can support vigorous growth.
  • Pests/Diseases: Relatively pest-free and disease-resistant. Ensure good air circulation to prevent any potential fungal issues.

Landscape Use:

  • Ideal for rock gardens, borders, and as a groundcover.
  • Perfect for edging paths and walkways.
  • Excellent for erosion control on slopes and banks.
  • Complements other perennials and can be used to create stunning contrasts with darker foliage plants.

Propagation:

  • Division: Divide clumps in early spring or after flowering to propagate and rejuvenate the plant.
  • Seed: Can be grown from seeds, though division is the preferred method for maintaining cultivar characteristics.

Special Features:

  • Attractive Foliage: The silvery foliage adds a unique texture and color to the garden, providing year-round interest even when the plant is not in bloom.
  • Easy to Grow: Low maintenance and highly adaptable, making it suitable for novice gardeners.

Snow in Summer 'Yo Yo' is a versatile and attractive groundcover that brightens up the garden with its snowy white blooms and silvery leaves. Its low-growing habit and ability to spread make it an excellent choice for creating lush, low-maintenance landscapes.
