Snowflake LS

Leucojum aestivum

“LS” is short for Landscape Size. These bulbs are smaller than those of our regular Snowflake, which means fewer flowers in year one. The benefit is that the bulbs are less expensive, making them attractive for large plantings. If planted in a sunny location, they should catch up with our large bulbs in a year or two.

Snowflakes are great for naturalizing. They can handle the competition from tall grass, rising above to produce plentiful sprays of delicate white bells. And they are not afraid of heavy, wet soil; they actually prefer it. Wet or dry, given the sun they crave, they can increase their number as the years pass, becoming a fixture in the spring landscape from Minneapolis to Mobile. Pasadena, too. Our LS bulbs are grown in the USA and shipped loose in crates of 500. Looking for our jumbo-size bulbs? Click here.

Bloom Time Mid
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

Full sun or partial shade and soil that does not dry out entirely in summer. In the wild, snowflakes are found in damp meadows and on river banks, so they are a good choice for a spot where the soil is less than perfectly drained. Bulbs are slow to go dormant in summer; wait to cut back until the leaves have yellowed.

Depth of Planting Hole 4 inches
Spacing 3 inches apart
