Snow In Summer Plant
What a great time my husband and I had out in the Lake Erie region this May. It was our 29th wedding anniversary weekend and I this was the perfect place to celebrate. After a late lunch we stopped by Bergman Orchard and that is where I found the ‘Snow In Summer’ Plant. I share more about that in the video below.

Snow In Summer Fun Facts
The white / silver foliage color makes the plant irresistible to me. It reminds me of the annual I love named ‘Silver Falls’ ( Dichondra argentea) at first glance. Below are a few fun facts about the plant:
- Blooms during the month of June
- Does best in dry / sandy soil
- Requires full sun
- Outstanding foliage color
Reference About Snow In Summer
In the video I share a few websites that I personally trust. You can find a complete list of extension office websites on my website. Be sure to check out your state and search for information about plants you would like to grow.
The photos on the North Carolina Extension site give wonderful examples of where to plant. You will notice the soil is very dry and yet the plant is in full bloom. It is hard to believe the plant is invasive in North Carolina.
