Chionodoxa luciliae grows between 5000 and 6500 feet in W. Turkey, not far below the snow line, justifying its name in Greek, Glory of the Snow. It is a bright blue, star-like flower with a white centre, three to a stem. The leaves are up to 8" (20cm) long and slightly recurved.

Planting Instructions

Chionodoxa luciliae bulbs are good in perennial beds, 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 quite close together, only 1-2" (3-5cm) 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.
