Chionodoxa luciliae

The Chionodoxa luciliae of gardens is probably really C. forbesii  with a many flowered one sided raceme native of South Turkey. C luciliae itself later got called C gigantea (!), and has a lax 3-flowered raceme. C.luciliae grows between 5000 and 6500 feet in W. Turkey, not far below the snow line, justifying its name in the Greek, Glory of the Snow.  It is a bright blue, starlike flower with a white centre, three to a stem. The leaves are up to 8" (20cm) long slightly recurved

Planting Instructions

These small bulbs are good in perennial beds or for naturalizing in rock gardens or woodlands and combine well with daffodils, grape hyacinth, crocus and other small bulbs. They can also be naturalised in a lawn, though mowing too early or cutting to low needs to be avoided. Plant the bulbs bulbs to put in quite close together, only 1-2" (2.5-5cm) apart or 30-40 per sq foot and 2" (5cm) deep in nearly any situation in lighter soils.  Do buy lots as planting densities need to be generous, though they will seed
