Schneekuppe Heath is a multi-stemmed evergreen shrub with a mounded form. It lends an extremely fine and delicate texture to the landscape composition which should be used to full effect.
This is a relatively low maintenance shrub, and should only be pruned after flowering to avoid removing any of the current season's flowers. It is a good choice for attracting bees to your yard. It has no significant negative characteristics.
Schneekuppe Heath is covered in stunning spikes of white bell-shaped flowers rising above the foliage from late winter to mid spring. It has green evergreen foliage. The tiny needles remain green throughout the winter.
Schneekuppe Heath will grow to be only 6 inches tall at maturity, with a spread of 15 inches. It tends to fill out right to the ground and therefore doesn't necessarily require facer plants in front. It grows at a slow rate, and under ideal conditions can be expected to live for approximately 20 years.
