Flowers: February-March. Plant in sun or part shade. HxS 45x15cm
The Spring Snowflake is much larger than its relation, the Snowdrop, and is a superb plant for early season interest, following on from the Snowdrops. The white flowers are held on long stems with all six petals of equal length, having conspicuous green markings at their tips. It is an easy-to-grow plant that multiplies freely in most gardens provided the soil is moist enough. Plants have been known to withstand flooding and standing water so it is an ideal choice for bog gardens and pond-side plantings. RHS AGM award. Hardiness rating H5.
Care & Maintenance.
Once the plant dies back it is easy to remove the bulbils for propagation. You can also collect seed. Remove old foliage in summer.
