Spring snowflake bulbs
- Position: full sun
- Soil: reliably moist but well-drained soil
- Rate of growth: average
- Flowering period: March to April
- Flower colour: white with green tips
- Hardiness: fully hardy
Nodding, bell-shaped, white flowers, each with green tips, top upright stems in early spring. Closely related to the snowdrop, this is a later-flowering, taller option that looks wonderful when naturalised in bold drifts throughout a lawn, or allowed to clump up in pockets towards the front of the border. They prefer reliably moist (but not waterlogged) soils, so are ideal for planting on the upper banks of a pond.
- Garden care: Plant bulbs in autumn 10cm deep and 8 - 10 apart. Allow the plant to die back completely before clearing away the foliage.
