Snowflurry Ceanothus is an evergreen 10 foot bush with lush 2 inch leaves and a good white flower show. Not as drought tolerant or cold tolerant as other individuals of this species we have grown. This one is not hardy below 15 degrees F., and expect severe damage at 20 degrees F. If your climate is warm enough, though, it is an excellent replacement for mock orange (Philadelphus) or camellias along the coast. A real sissy in the interior. We usually are out of it because it melts in the summer and freezes in the greenhouses in the winter. The Escondido nursery sometimes grows some, but the plants really want to be in San Francisco, Santa Monica or Oceanside where they can be stunning, instead of dead.
