Chionodoxa is one of the first bulbs to flower in spring. Also known as glory of the snow, the bulbs are native to Eastern Europe where they flower at high altitudes. Chionodoxa is a great choice for naturalising in lawns and under trees and when planted in large quantities, the flowers make a dazzling carpet.
