For each offer ordered, get 10Perk up your garden with fluffy Double Snowdrops. The ruffled white flowers surround emerald green inner petals; the nodding flowers often have a hint of yellow as well. Galanthus nivalis, or 'flore pleno,' emerge from the ground in early spring--sometimes even before the last snows have melted. Their brightly coloured blooms may last for weeks, adding lasting beauty and fragrance to your landscape.
These lightly honey-scented flowers thrive in sunny and semi-shaded areas, making them ideal for both outdoor and indoor gardens. Cultivation is easy. Just bury these Dutch snowdrop bulbs about two inches deep and two inches apart. Make sure they're in well drained loamy, clay or sandy soil. Hardy in zones 2 to 9, these plants can cope with almost any climate. Low-maintenance, Double Snowdrops do not require any pruning and are nearly impervious to pests.
These low growing beauties stand four to six inches tall, making them excellent container plants. You may also like planting your snowdrop bulbs around the edges of your garden or underneath larger plants to serve as a border or accent. Galanthus nivalis, or 'flore pleno,' is ready to brighten your garden. Help spring come a little earlier with these charming flowers.
