In my nursery 'Snow Pavement' often shows a subtle shading of the white flowers with lavender. Its so subtle that I would doubt my eyes except that so many customers have commented on it. Andrew Van Cleve of Azalea House Flowering Shrub Farm

We had a Snow Pavement in a previous garden that had a definite pale lilac blush. It was much taller than listed - easily 5 feet tall.

What zone were you in (and state) and how much sun? I have 3, will need to move one and now nervous they will get too big for spots. Thanks

Just picked my first bloom today -- pale lavender and intense delicious fragrance. SP is a 4 yo in full sun and blooms will fade to a white in a day or so, altho occasionally it will retain a pinkish cast to the blooms if the weather remains cool. It is a densely branching 3 x 4.

'Pavement' is a misnomer. This gets huge. It would be a good choice for a dense, thorny hedge, where that might be needed. If you are in a climate too cold for Mermaid, try this one. Flower color and fragrance are as described above.

Planted from a tiny band in 2021, by 2023 my two were 3 feet tall and throwing long canes. Blooms in long frequent flushes. Moderate scent. Fair cuttings for vase. Against the house in a fairly sheltered southern exposure but only about 5-6 hours of direct sunlight. Green mostly to tip every winter so far in 5b, this past winter saw -25F.
