The abundant pure white flowers of the Yo Yo Snow in Summer steal the show when they bloom in early summer and blanket the entire surface of this perennial. The trumpet-shaped flowers have notched petals for a subtle and charming detail. The flowers are certainly noteworthy, but the foliage of the Cerastium tomentosum is not to be missed. The delicate silvery leaves are beautiful on their own and are on full display once flowering is complete.

This plant has a spreading growth habit and is a popular ground cover. Feature Yo Yo Snow in Summer plants in garden beds or borders, but be aware that this plant grows relatively quickly and can take over a space. The ideal area will have room for this beauty to spread out. The foliage will create a cascading effect when grown on a retaining wall or in a stone wall. Plant in a container and let the stems drape over the side. This plant grows as a perennial in USDA zones 3 through 7.

Yo Yo Snow in Summer Care

Plant the Yo Yo Snow in Summer in full sun. This beauty needs increased light to thrive, and lots of light reduces the risk of mold or fungus plaguing this plant. Well-drained, slightly acidic soil supports abundant blooms. Water this stunner only when the top few inches of soil are dry. The Yo Yo Snow in Summer would much rather be too dry than too wet. Fertilization isn’t necessary as this plant does very well in poor-quality soil, but applying a fertilizer high in phosphorus can jump-start growth.

Pruning is not necessary and damaged growth can be removed at any time. Divide this plant every few years as soon as blooming is complete.

Yo Yo Snow in Summer Spacing

Yo Yo Snow in Summer is a spreading plant commonly used as a groundcover. This beauty will grow 4 to 6 inches tall and cover an area of 12 to 15 inches. Plants can be spaced 15 inches apart to create a dense, mat-like effect.

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Guarantee and Warranty

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.

Summer

If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!

Winter

Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
