Snow-in-summer is a double whammy plant -- it covers itself with striking white flowers but it also has striking silvery foliage. It looks completely at home in the hot, dry, sunny locations it loves -- next to sidewalks, between pavers, in rock gardens, along the edge of retaining walls, and tucked into the cracks of stacked stone walls. In fact, if the soil is too wet too long, root rot is likely to set in.
Where it's happy, snow-in-summer will slowly spread, creating a carpet of white blooms that cover the plant in spring to early summer.
