Spring snowflakes rarely show up in bulb offerings, not because they're hard to grow, but because they don't hold well for months in a cooler like many other bulbs do. These 1" bells resemble summer snowflakes/leucojum aestivum but with flowers that are appear earlier, are wider and are on shorter plants. Plant both types and extend the snowflake season.
Leucojum vernum has been awarded the prestigious Award of Garden Merit by the British Royal Horticultural Society, a highly sought after honor.
Spring snowflake bulbs like to be in the ground, and not so much in a cooler. These bulbs have a shorter than average shipping window (see above under the pricing info) so if you want some this season, don't dawdle.
