When the snow is just starting to melt these charming little flowers spring from the frozen earth. Among the very first signs of life in the landscape, snowdrops are much loved for their tenacity. Giant snowdrops are the tallest and the earliest of this clan, with broader leaves and larger flowers.
These clump forming flowers are happy in a wide range of growing zones and light conditions. The flowers close on cloudy days and appear as oval pearls. When sunny, the petals open wide, taking on a winged appearance.
