Plant details

For many gardeners snowdrops herald the end of winter. They are extraordinarily hardy, and can be depended on to flower very early whatever the weather - the colder and gloomier it is, the longer the blooms last, but in a sunny warm season they are comparatively fleeting, so always plant in light shade. The variety 'S. Arnott' produces flowers with a subtle fragrance, that are almost twice the size of common snowdrops, on stems that can reach 25cm (10in) tall.
