Snow in Summer Seeds

Snow in Summer, also known as Mouse-Ear Chickweed and Silver Carpet, gets its name from the extravagant, pristine white flowers that bloom in early summer. These fun flowers are not the only benefit to this popular ground cover! Snow in Summer also offers a delicate, silver colored wooly foliage that creates a very attractive natural carpet.

Snow in Summer is a very popular choice for rock gardens, edgings and moon gardens.

This plant is very hardy, tolerates most soil types and drought and is resistant to deer and rabbits.
