Parahebe Snow Clouds


Produces a delicate display of white flowers

Snow cloud has dark green, lance-shaped leaves and delivers white flowers with pink centres in late Spring and early Summer. Less invasive than other Parahebes, this can grow to around six inches tall and spread to around twenty.


Pick a spot in full sunlight or partial shade being sure that the soil is moist and well-draining.


Plant in the garden or use a container. Plant in clumps to create a wide enough spread in a shorter time.

While generally disease free, Snow cloud can be attacked by slugs and snails.

Planting instructions

Water the plant in its pot thoroughly before planting – give it a good soaking. Prepare the area by digging a hole twice the size of the pot. Dig compost into the base of the hole. Remove the pot and position the plant in the hole, with the top of the rootball about level with the surrounding soil. Refill the planting hole with a mixture of garden soil and compost, firming as you go. Water in well and keep well watered during the plant's first year.
