Product Description

One of the earliest flowering of the spring bulbs, Chionodoxa is a superb choice for naturalising and makes a fantastic display when planted in large groups.

Masses of wonderfully attractive, star-shaped flowers in shades of blue with petals that arch backwards appear in swathes in late winter and early spring, often when there is snow on the ground, hence its alternative name, ‘Glory of the Snow’. Very versatile and easy to grow. Ideal for rocky borders.

Fully deserving its coveted RHS Award of Garden Merit, you can be sure that this is a proven garden performer, guaranteed to be suitable for UK gardeners at every level of experience. You can therefore plant this in the garden with confidence, for stunning displays for many years to come.

Supplied as 60 bulbs, size 4/5, ready to plant in autumn, growing to a height of 15 cm (6 in) and spread of 10 cm (4 in).

Plant Information

Top Tips

  • Plant generously in bold swathes for the ultimate spring display of flowers.

Care Guide

  • Plant bulbs at twice the depth of the height of the bulb and four times their width apart. e.g. 2cm tall bulbs need to be planted 4cm below the surface of the ground and 8cm apart.
  • Please check the bag for any additional planting instructions.
  • They are fine to plant even if a little green growth is showing, they’ll just need a good watering when you plant them, and then only when the soil is dry.
  • Leave them in the ground once they die back – they’ll come back bigger and better each year.
  • While all the energy that a bulb needs in order to grow is stored in the bulb itself, they will do better if you feed them when in active green growth.
  • Plant in herbaceous borders, in pots, or leave in the ground to naturalise.
  • If planted in pots be sure to water frequently and keep moist.
