Plant details

Glory of the snow is an appropriate name for these beautiful low-growing bulbs from Turkey. They are some of the first bulbs to flower in spring and, when planted generously, create a dazzling carpet of flowers. Chionodoxa 'Pink Giant', as the name suggests, has pink blooms. Plant them liberally, under shrubs, beside hedges and in patches on the lawn.
