Leucojum or Snowflakes are among the lesser known early season flowers and we'd love to see that change. There are two main types; Spring Snowflakes (vernum) and Summer Snowflakes (aestivum). These are some of the easiest, most dependable spring flowers - unappealing to deer, flowering well in sun to dappled shade and naturalizing readily. Leucojum also thrive in an amazingly wide range; from southern California to Maine. Charming and tough - nice.
