Raised by E. A. Bowles and following his habit of naming his own seedlings of C. chrysanthus and C. biflorus after birds. He wrote:
"...I still hope for the day when a pure white exterior will be found on a new seedling. White forms with blue featherings or stripes are numerous.
'Snow Bunting is my best ... It received an F.C.C. in 1925."
