Cerastrium tormentosa has the common name Snow in Summer.

It has densly hairy leaves giving it a silver appearance and white flowers which cover the plant. It loves full sun and well drained soil and tumbles over container edges and borders, in fact its a very strong grower and quickly forms a dense mat. It is fully hardy (unless sat on repeatedly by ducks), doesn't appear to have any problems with pests and diseases and originates from Italy.

Give it plenty of room, tiG - I am going to have to move mine or move some of my other plants whose fragile territories it's planning to usurp! :o) Kimberley

tiG... The info on my snow in summer also said NOT to fertilize. Last year, I had fertilized before I read that tidbit, and it did poorly. Much better this year!
