Snowdrops

Galanthus elwesii

Snowdrops are the earliest of all bulbs. They open their white, winged flowers before anyone dares whisper “spring.” For best results, plant in soil that is not too dry and beneath trees that lose their leaves.

Bloom Time Very Early
Bloom times are relative within the spring bulb season, which varies from place to place and year to year. They are intended to help you plan a sequence of bloom from Very Early season to Very Late season. About two weeks separate Early from Mid and Mid from Late. The start and duration of bloom is heavily dependent on the weather. Warm temperatures speed up growth and flowering; cold temperatures slow them down.

Planting Instructions

Plant in partial shade (will tolerate full sun in northern regions) and loose, rich, evenly moist soil. Established bulbs may produce leaves in late fall or early winter but generally wait to flower until the first hint of warmth in early spring. If you want to relocate Snowdrops or divide a clump, the best time to do it is just after bloom, while the leaves are still green.

Note: Snowdrops suffer from prolonged periods of dry storage; we urge you to get them into the ground as soon as you receive them.
