An undemanding groundcover for full sun and poor soil. In other words, a dream come true! Highly valued for its woolly gray foliage, ‘Snow in Summer’ lives up to its name in late spring and early summer when the foliage is smothered in luminous white flowers.
Though Cerastium can be a rapidly spreading groundcover, ‘Yo Yo’ has a more restrained, compact habit, making it easier to control. Try growing it in pockets of stone walls, on slopes, or in poor, dry soil where other perennials struggle. It grows especially well in northern zones where summers are cooler and less humid.
