HORTICULTURAL
Plant Sale Text: Alabama snow-wreath is a lesser-known southeastern native deciduous shrub. It is a rare plant, with only scattered populations existing in the wild. Cymes of small, feathery white flowers are borne on the previous year’s wood. Its overall shape is upright and open, eventually becoming rounded in form. The genus is named after the Reverend D. R. Nevius (1827-1913) of Alabama, who discovered it. Once established, it is considered a low-maintenance shrub. It looks best when planted in soil that remains moist, though never soggy. It has no serious insect or disease problems.
