GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The Delicate Flowers Of “Summer Snowflake” Will Add Elegance To Early Season Borders. Native To Europe And Western Asia, This Hardy Bulbos Perennial Plant Is Notable For Its Ease Of Growth And Old Fashioned Charm.

The Vigorous “Summer Snowflake” Has Long Deep Green Strap-Like Leaves In A Thick Clump, In Mid-Late Spring; Knee-High, Leafless Stems Bear Up To Eight White Nodding Flowers At Their Tips. The Lantern-Shaped Flowers Have Six-Toothed Green-Tipped Lobes.

“Leucojum Aestivum” Has Received The Royal Horticultural Society’s Award Of Garden Merit (Agm) Which Is For Plants Of Outstanding Excellence.

“Summer Snowflake” Couldn’t Be Easier Or More Rewarding To Grow. Plant The Bulbs In The Autumn In Moist Well-Drained Soil With Plenty Of Humus. They Are Best Under Deciduous Trees Where They Receive Full Sun While In Bloom, But Partial Shade Later On. They Require At Least 2 Months Of Chill In The Winter To Grow And Flower Well. Do Not Disturb The Bulbs, But Rather Allow Them To Form Large Clumps. They Also Spread Through Self-Sowing.

Plant “Summer Snowflake” In Masses In Lawns, Under Deciduous Trees And Shrubs, Or In Rock Gardens, Mixed Borders, Or Containers. The Fragrant Flowers Are Lovely When Cut And Displayed In Bud Vases. It Helps To Let Their Leaves Die Back Naturally In Late Spring, Rather Than Cut Them Back After They’re Finished Blooming. To Clip Them Back Too Soon When The Leaves Have Only Begun To Yellow, Deprives The Bulbs Of The Fullest Chance To Store Energy And Produce Offsets. They Are Most Successfully Transplanted While Growing (In The Green) And Dry Bulbs Often Take A Season To Settle Down Before Flowering.

Plant The Bulbs 5cm (2”) Deep And Leave 5-7 Cm (2-3”) Between Bulbs.
