What do these mean?



‘Snow Flurry’ ceanothus was selected from the Big Sur coast in 1975. It grows as an upright shrub of shiny dark green leaves, eventually filling a considerable area. Its exuberant growth makes it a great choice for a screen if space allows. In late winter, this selection lives up to its name with abundant large clusters of bright white flowers. Site in soil of at least medium drainage and provide plenty of room for growth. Like all ceanothus, ‘Snow Flurry’ does best with little or no water once established. Although of coastal origin, it does fine in full sun in Sunset zone 15. In inland locations, some protection from the afternoon sun is advisable. Blooms in late March/early April in Santa Clara County.
