Snowdrops

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.

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.

when-to-plant

Spring-flowering bulbs must be planted in the fall. They need cool soil to make roots before the onset of winter. Cool fall weather arrives at different times from north to south and from high elevations to low.

Please note that the temperature of the soil lags behind the air temperature. You can generally plant later than the windows provided in this map. As long as the ground is not frozen, you can still plant.

The amaryllis are the last bulbs to arrive in the Colorblends warehouse. They are typically available for delivery toward the end of October. They can be planted upon receipt. They can also be stored in a cool, dry location for several weeks. Please note: Amaryllis bulbs may start growing before they are potted. If you decide to delay planting, open the bag(s) and set the bulbs on their roots so that the flower stems can grow straight up. And don't forget to mark your calendar or set a reminder to pot the bulbs.
Paperwhites can be potted upon receipt. They can also be stored in a cool, dry location for many weeks. Many people pot their bulbs in batches, one after the next, to keep the fragrance coming. It's not unusual for paperwhites to begin to sprout while in storage. The shoots emerge an inch or two and then stop, as though the bulbs realize they are getting ahead of themselves. The shoots often curl around the bulbs, pointing opposite gravity. After the bulbs are potted, the shoots straighten up.
