Buy Leucojum vernum Spring snowflake bulbs: Like a tall, late-flowering snowdrop

  • Position: full sun
  • Soil: reliably moist but well-drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: March to April
  • 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.

  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs

Leucojum vernum

I have planted Snowflake Leucojum on the banks of a stream with helebores and irises. They have spread wonderfully and they look gorgeous in spring - but retain their leaves for months which get battered by the wind, fall over and look awful, and are also throttling, and keeping the light from the irises and helebores. If I feed them could `i cut back the foliage just a bit? or is the soil too rich already (lots of leaf mould)? congratulations on this site - really good to use.

Hello, This is always a bit of a dilemma, as the foliage can look tatty when it is dying back, but if you cut it off before it has gone brown and crispy, then the plants will be weakened in the following year. That is because there is a lot of goodness in those leaves, which moves back down into the bulb as they die back.
