Description

» English Description

Irregular double to semi-double flower, pure white, without pink tinge, up to 8 cm wide.   Leaves pale green. Habit upright and fast growth. The  shape  of the  flower and the plant habit are  rather similar to Pietro Capecchi's 'Principessa Borromeo'. Probably originated in Tuscany before 2002.  The cultivar name is  dedicated to Snow  White, the protagonist of the Grimm's tale "Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs". Another Italian sasanqua cultivar, originated by F.L.M., is also named 'Biancaneve'.
