New in 2006. I grew from seed this year.

Pure white, extra double, ruffled flowers. Extra double, ruffled and white. Thick, strong stems carry uniformly large 3" blooms, creating pools of cool, pure color all summer. 'Snowman' is suited to both the garden bed and the vase, and makes an ideal partner for contrasting colored blooms.

I find that the flowers are not "pure white" and have some creamy to pale yellow tones. The plants are strong and healthy. Since they are a hybrid, saving seed is not recommended since plants will not come true.
