Helping You Become a More Successful Gardener
Ednie Flower Bulb, Inc.
Giant snowdrops are very-early blooming, bulbous perennials, native to southeastern Europe. They produce honey-scented, pendant flowers in winter, often through the snow. White flowers marked with green inner tepals emerge on slender stems from a basal clump of twisted, lance-shaped, dark green leaves. The giant snowdrop is better suited to mild winter climates than the common snowdrop. The bulbs are poisonous if eaten.
Snowdrops couldn’t be easier or more rewarding to grow. Plant the bulbs in the fall in moist, but well-drained soil with plenty of humus. They prefer full sun while they are blooming and partial shade after. The foliage neatly dies back after blooming. They must have a prolonged chilling period in winter to yield flowers. Do not disturb the bulbs, but rather allow them to naturalize and spread in the area where first planted. Use snowdrops in masses under deciduous trees or shrubs, in rock gardens, the mixed border, or in containers. The fragrant flowers are lovely when cut and displayed in bud vases.
