To give us all a lift in winter (or to cool off our friends in the Southern Hemisphere, in midsummer as they are), some plants with "Snow" in their names, beginning above with 'Amethysts in Snow' centaurea.
Harbour Breezes Daylilies and Japanese Irises in Jeddore, on the eastern shore, has introduced this new registered cultivars for 2014, including one for Rob Baldwin of Baldwin's Nurseries, and one for plant addict and garden geek me, too!
It isn't surprising that some of the earliest blooming bulbs have 'snow' in their name. This delicate little crocus is called 'Snow Bunting', for the dainty birds of the same name.
you can see 'Snowflake' here.
I am not going to mention the common snowball bush (Viburnum opulus) here, because I dislike it; usually covered in aphids or prone to viburnum leaf beetle, looking great while in bloom for about a week then turning to a dull green blob of leaves. Far better is the gorgeous 'Summer Snowflake' doublefile viburnum, Viburnum tomentosum plicatum. Its branches grow out horizontally from the central stem, and it covers itself in lacy flowers for weeks, often reblooming in late summer or early fall.
This is just a sampling of plants with snow in their names. Are any of your favourites here? Feel free to add other plant names in the comments, and maybe we'll have a followup post!
