Also referred to as snowball, Boule de Neige blooms form almost perfect ruffled globes. If pruned carefully she makes a large shrub or short climber. Fully cupped flowers in pure white are tinted gently with cream while the bright green stems display red thorns. 

The very best production is in autumn so place this plant accordingly.
