- Description: Tropical Pacific Islands' snowbush is a perennial plant with attractive variegated foliage and scarlet stalks. It is frequently utilized in hedges in its natural habitat. It has a rounded to vase-shaped growth that is 2-4 feet tall and wide. There are cultivars with leaves that are speckled with pink and white.
Snowbush thrives in full sun to partial shade, medium to fertile soil that is wet. It can be used as a decorative element in a container in the garden or on the patio in North Carolina, but it must be moved inside for the winter. Wintertime low humidity levels in homes will promote leaf drop, thus greenhouses are the ideal overwintering options.
