Quick Overview

Snowbush is a soft pink fantasy of a shrub with an airy, delicate look - a South Florida favorite for its romantic, informal appeal.

The white- and pink-mottled leaves of 'Roseo-picta' make it appear as if the plant has been snowed upon, even though it is a tropical plant. It is an evergreen shrub growing to 3 feet or more with pink and red stems in zigzagged formation. Native to Pacific islands, it is grown as an indoor plant or perennial, or as an annual in cooler climates. The tiny flowers go generally unnoticed. Do not allow the soil to dry out, as leaf drop will occur

This plant adds a sweet touch as a single accent or cloud-like group plantings. It's an excellent cottage-garden landscape staple, best left to grow fluffy rather than manicured. New growth is darker pink on maroon stems, and the color fades to a mottled mix of pastel pink, gray-green and white as the foliage matures. The color works best mixed with blue, pink, purple, lavender, white, even soft red - rather than strong shades like oranges or yellows. There is a lesser-used dwarf variety that looks like a little boxwood dusted in snow. The dwarf is a slower grower with smaller leaves and a mostly white variegation. Plant specs This evergreen plant is a moderate to fast grower that keeps its best color and fullness in full to part sun. It prefers the warmth of Zone 10, and can grow large but is best kept about 3 feet tall. (The dwarf you can keep at 2 feet.) Plant care Amend the soil with a combination of top soil or organic peat moss and composted cow manure added to the hole when you plant. This plant self-seeds so be prepared to pull up baby shoots around the mama plant. Trim for size occasionally, cut back a bit harder in spring (late March to early April). Water on a regular basis but don't keep the area overly wet. Snowbush foliage detail Fertilize 3 times a year (in spring, summer and autumn) with a quality granular fertilizer. Plant spacing Plant these shrubs 3 feet apart. Come out from the house at least 2-1/2 to 3 feet. This pretty plant will grow in a container, though it does much better in the ground.
