Galanthus Nivalis (Common Snowdrop Bulbs)


Galanthus Nivalis (Common Snowdrop Bulbs)

A favourite for late winter


It's hard not to love these wonderful bulbs for adding colour to the garden when little else is awake. The nodding white flowers have a small green marking on the inside of each tepal, are honey scented, and appear in late winter. They look particularly good planted in large drifts in grass where they will naturalise quite happily. Alternatively plant them up in clumps in the front of mixed borders, or into pots so they can be admired close up.
