Snake's Head

Specialty Bulbs Snakes Head

Pointed buds open to maroon (occasionally white), bell-shaped blooms. Snake’s Head looks like a wildflower and is best used as such—in a meadow, under trees, around shrubs. Happiest in part shade and evenly moist soil.
Deer Resistant

Note: Snake’s Head is resistant to deer, but rodents such as voles and gophers may eat the bulbs.
