Chionodoxa are amongst some of the earliest bulbs to flower hence why we suspect they are commonly know as 'Glory of the Snow'. This is the pure white flowered form of Chinodoxa and it is a great performer in the garden and very relible. Its dwarf growing habitat is ideal for covering those areas under trees and shrubs. They are a very useful group of bulbs that are easy to grow preferring well drained soil and the sunnier parts of the garden although they are also happy in semi shade. They will naturalise very well, plant in most soils that are free draining. In heavier soils such as clay cultivate the top layer of soil and add grit and well rotted humus and this should provide the drainage that they need.
Aspect: Semi shade to full sun
Soil type: All free draining soils
