Glory of the snow is an appropriate name for these beautiful low-growing bulbs from Turkey. They are some of the first to flower in spring and, when planted generously, create a dazzling carpet of blue stars with white centres (also white or pink, according to species and variety), each 2.5cm (1in) or more across and borne in dainty sprays - they are excellent for cutting. Flowering lasts for 3-4 weeks, after which both the flowers and the foliage quickly fade from sight. Plant them liberally, under shrubs, beside hedges and in patches on the lawn.
