Description

This snowdrop originates from the Greek islands, and is named after Icarus for the wing-shaped markings on the petals. Perfect for adding winter cheer in a pot by the front door, when so much else in the garden is still dormant.

Care Tips

Divide when plants are in the green (just after flowering and before the leaves yellow). Dig deep under large clumps to lift then split by hand into smaller clumps and plant at the same depth.
