Chaenostoma cordatum 'Snowflake' - tender?

LG_LG_ SE LondonPosts: 4,049
This caught my eye in a nearby garden today. Was Google Lens correct in its identification? It was quite lovely, with very white flowers and actually growing under a hedge! It didn't look as though it had been planted out recently so I'm wondering whether it might, though officially tender, be a plant that might be OK to leave outside in the South East, in a sheltered spot. Does anyone have any experience of doing this?

    I've been looking through threads I've started to see if I need to do any follow ups (thanks @Fire) and came across this one, sitting all on its ownsome. I'd still be interested in any responses!

    I know this as Bacopa and have a pink variety that survived the winter. I live on the S Wales coast

    Thanks @izzy8 . I had noticed that the flowers were like Bacopa, but they were quite a lot bigger than the ones I'm used to so I thought it was a different plant! Thanks for pointing that out πŸ™‚
    Might be worth risking it in a sheltered spot then πŸ‘πŸΌ
