Description

Petrea, commonly called Queen’s Wreath and the Sand Paper plants. Petra volubilis is well known to gardeners in sub-tropical and tropical gardens. ‘Snow Stars’, this rare white form grows to around 2.5 metres if not pruned. It will grow dome-shaped if freestanding but if allowed to climb a trellis of a small tree will scramble higher. 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.  

Care

It will grow dome-shaped if freestanding but if allowed to climb a trellis of a small tree will scramble higher. Prune to suit after flowering. This petrea is a hungery feeder, ensure you provide them with slow release fertilizer if the leaves turn to a lime green from the dark green they should producte.
