Medal Of Excellence Nominee: Lobularia 'Snow Princess' By Kientzler For Proven Winners

‘Snow Princess,’ was the absolute belle of this year’s California Pack Trials. A breakthrough in the lobularia genus, ‘Snow Princess’ offers heat tolerance and extended season performance you won’t find in alyssum. Plants are vigorous and sterile. Because ‘Snow Princess’ puts no energy into setting seed, it has an incredibly long bloom time. In Florida trials, ‘Snow Princess’ displayed mounds of fragrant white blooms from January through July.

Plants are versatile, creating great hanging baskets, window boxes either solo or as a combination filler. What are the best plants to pair with ‘Snow Princess?’ Due to its vigorous nature and short crop time, match ‘Snow Princess’ with fast-growing plants that prefer cool temperatures. Recommended Proven Winners companions are Superbena verbenas and Supertunia Vista petunias.

‘Snow Princess’ hang tags are available as part of the Proven Winners tag exchange program. Growers have the option of ordering individual stake tags or one hang tag for every four liners of ‘Snow Princess’ ordered.

Cultural tips for growers include:

– Plants require high light production.

– Don’t grow over plants that are sensitive to petal drop, as ‘Snow Princess’ can shed.

– Grow cool for best results, but growing too cool can cause purple foliage.

– Liners should be pinched when received. Give a second pinch two weeks after transplant. 3-5 ppm Sumagic will help control growth.
