Quick Overview:

A blanket of pure white! Large clusters of flowers carpet the narrow, evergreen leaves from mid to late spring. This variety is fairly tall for the species and has the added bonus of a tendency to rebloom in the fall.

Description

Typically grown in medium moisture, well-drained soils in full sun. Less floriferous if grown in part shade. Well-drained soil is the key to growing this plant well. Tolerant of drought. Cut or sheer plants stems back by 1/3 after flowering to encourage new growth and to maintain compact habit. In cold winter climates, mulch plants with a modest covering of evergreen boughs in winter to help minimize potential damage from sun scorch and desiccation. Plant foliage often benefits in winter from snow cover. Stems may root where they touch the ground creating new plants which can be left as is or transplanted to other areas.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
