Snow Stars

Petrea ‘Snow Stars’ is a member of one of the most beautiful of semi-tropical to tropical vines. Native from Mexico to Central America and slow growing ‘Snow Stars’ will attain 2.5metres over several years and is easily maintained in a compact form not really needing a trellis. Petrea ‘Snow Stars’ is rare in cultivation, harder to propagate which has caused the demand. Petreas are commonly called Sand Paper Plants because the leaves are rough like sand paper.
Petrea ‘Snow Stars’ responds well to ordinary soil, needs full sun to partial shade, and give little or no trouble in the garden. Pruning may be needed to restrict the plant to size and shape. Mulching will improve the maintenance factor making the plant much easier to grow and flower for you in your garden. In early spring just as the plants are coming back into growth a fertilising application with a complete balanced fertiliser would be beneficial.
