If a few garden snowflakes are good - and they are - then more are better. That's certainly the message here and from an ease of planting, wide growing range, carefree disposition and low cost standpoint, it's hard to argue with the approach.
Each stem produced 4 to 8 bell-shaped blooms, with jaunty scallops and green edge dots. An unusual and welcome addition to spring bouquets.
