Description

Faint green splotches near the tips of the outer whorl of petals distinguish this cultivar from all other snowdrops. As soon as temperatures begin to warm in late winter, this cultivar springs from the frozen ground and perfumes the air with the fragrance of honey. On sunny days, the other petals open wide, releasing their fragrance and inviting pollinators to visit. Snowdrops are an ideal selection for naturalizing under large deciduous trees like oaks and maples. Their very short growing period allows them to complete their life cycle before the trees leaf out.
