Description

A much underestimated totally perennial bulb for naturalising in grass, placing at the base of trees and at the front of a soft-coloured border.

It's also excellent as a perennial spring container plant and early season cut flower. More of us should grow snowflakes.

Care Tips

Allow leaves to die down before cutting them back. Propagate by division in autumn by removing offsets and re-planting.
