Cerastium tomentosum-Snow-In-Summer

Propagating Snow-in-summer is accomplished by digging up the rhizomes that shoot off from the parent plant in either the spring or fall and in some circles are considered invasive because they grow in a well drained poor soil in full sun and are drought resistant so planting on rocky slopes is possible. Their silvery leaves are colorful once the white flowers fade, blooming from May to June and should be trimmed to be kept neat looking although it only reaches a height of 6" and is deer resistant as well as being evergreen.
