Delivered to you in August / September
Originally thought to be an autumn flowering form of the snowflake family but now in their own distinct group, forming distinct tussocks once happy and undisturbed in a warm dry sunny soil (rockery or scree bed are ideal). Slender wiry stems, either green or russet coloured, support several small white papery bells contrasting with the darker foliage.
Ideal for an alpine trough or sink where the slender foliage will not look out of place amongst other small plants as shown in one of the images from a happy customer.
This plant/cultivar has been awarded the RHS Award of Garden Merit because it has proved to be reliable in appropriate conditions and a good performing plant.
Plant the pea sized bulbs 3" (7.5cm) deep nearly touching and leave undisturbed in a warm, dry, sunny soil (rockery or scree bed are ideal)
Flowers August / September
Height 9" (22cm)
