‘Snow Flurry’ is a low, dense heath aster cultivar, at just 4-6” tall it spreads to form a dense mat. Effective and cascading groundcover, that when allowed flows over rocks or walls. Copious numbers of beautiful flowers appear in fall, making the plant appear white due to the sheer volume of flowers. Small and dainty, up to 1/2″ in diameter, rays are white, with yellow centers. Strong and reliable, easy to grow. Makes an excellent container plant, as it flows over the edges
Flowers attract long-tongued bees, short-tongued bees, wasps, flies, butterflies, skippers and moths
