The scoop on Galanthus Nivalis, Common Snowdrop

If you've been surprised by blooming clumps of white flowers in mid to late winter, odds are good these are what you observed. Snowdrops are early, easy, perennial and reliably hardy.

Why Grow Snowdrops / Galanthus?

  • Super early blooming, endearing, economical and tough enough to withstand bitter cold, snowdrops are sweet flowers
  • These perennials form substantial colonies over time, carpeting gardens, meadows and sites under deciduous trees
  • Snowdrop blooms are pendulous and white, with fine decorations in bright green or chartreuse yellow
  • Intricate and perfect, snowdrop flowers are ideal for tiny bud vases

The flowers close on cloudy days and appear as oval pearls. When sunny, the petals open wide, taking on a winged appearance. Snowdrops form clumps of sparkling blooms, here and there, given a few seasons. Just when you think winter will carry on forever, there they are, with their nodding white flowers. Always welcome.

This is a Leafari staff tested and recommended variety.
