Aster ericoides Snow Flurry
Snow Flurry Aster
Details3-4" tall x 18" wide, (cutting propagated). Use 'Snow Flurry' as a robust groundcover throughout your flower beds to provide a dense, weed-smothering carpet of bright green stems and tiny leaves. Then, in the fall, 'Snow Flurry' really shines disappearing under a blanket of its flowers. Taller perennials and ornamental grasses look so much showier when growing up through it! It grows easily in poor to average garden soils. Trim off the previous year's stems back to the green sprouts at the crown in mid-spring.

Q & A

USDA Hardiness Planting Zones
To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.
- If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
- If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).
