Cerastium tomentosum

Cerastium tomentosum (Snow-in-Summer) is a herbaceous flowering plant and a member of the carnation family. It is generally distinguished from other species of its genus by "tomentose" or felty foliage. It is a low, spreading perrenial native to alpine regions of Europe. The stems & leaves are silvery-grey, whilst the flowers are star-like, white & about 15mm across. Not surprisingly, C. tomentosum flowers in summer, but may also bloom at other times of the year. It has proven popular as a cultivated ornamental and can be found in gardens the world over.

Forms low growing, dense silvery-gray carpets to 6 inches tall and

2-3 feet across. In early summer the plants are smothered in masses

of showy snow-white flowers. An excellent choice for a small-scale

ground cover, an edging along paths, between stepping stones, or
spilling over the sides of large containers. Winter hardy to zone 3.


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.
