A harbinger of spring, Chionodoxa forbesii, also known as Glory of the Snow, will provide a pop of blue colouring to chase away the wintery greys. The bulbs will grow a few long, slender leaves which will be followed by an upright flower stalk topped by between four and ten upward facing, six-petaled star-shaped flowers in a striking violet-blue with a white centre. These bulbs are good naturalisers, and will come back year after year. Plant in groups during the autumn for a beautiful display in the early spring. Perfect for rockeries and borders, this easy to grow beauty will tolerate full sun or partial shade.

Plant Care & Advice

Chionodoxa are tolerant of a wide range of soils. Excellent for naturalising (leaving in for flowers year after year) in borders, containers, rockeries, wild gardens and woodland. Fully hardy, these bulbs readily multiply and will not need any attention for some years when they may be lifted, divided and replanted. Grow with puschkinia libanotica, scilla siberica and narcissi for a spectacular spring show.
