Quick Overview:

‘Fairy Snow’ is a dwarf plant which features 1.5″ diameter white flowers with blue veins inside which appear singly or in small clusters atop stems typically growing only 6-10″ tall. Dentate, lance-shaped leaves. Blooms throughout the summer.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)

Description

Best grown in light, medium moisture, organically rich, well-drained loams in full sun to part shade. Avoid wet or poorly-drained soils. Plants are easily grown from seed. Division and transplanting are possible but tricky because of the fragile, fleshy root systems of these plants, and it is probably best to leave plants undisturbed once established. Deadheading spent flowers generally prolongs the bloom period. New season plant stems emerge late in spring, so gardeners must be careful not to damage crowns by early cultivation (leaving old plant stems in place throughout winter to the point when the new growth first appears helps mark plant locations). Taller plants often need to be staked because of floppy stems. Consider cutting back plant stems by 1/2 in May to reduce plant height and possibly avoid staking.  (Courtesy of Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder)
