Chionodoxa Luciliae flowers multiple blooms, usually 3-12 blooms per stem, six-petalled flowerheads with lovely hues of light blue and purple, deeper towards the exterior, fading to a pale white in the centre. Towards the base of the plant is narrow, strap-like foliage of green colours.

Lovely pink hues, Chionodoxa Pink Giant is a perfect spring bloom for garden areas, open woodland gardens, rock gardens and fields. One of the prettiest pink spring blooms, Glory of the Snow can be forced indoors in pots or containers. Plant this dwarf flower at the front of beds or borders for blankets of bright blooms and use in cut flower arrangements.

Chionodoxa are also well-known as Glory of the Snow due to their inclination to bloom in the early spring season and they are some of the earliest blooms. Relatively short, Chionodoxa are a dwarf species that have star or saucer-shaped flowers with coloured blooms of some of the bluest blues, white and rose pinks.

Chionodoxa prefer to be planted in full sun to partially sunny areas in well-drained, fertile soils. Most varieties should be planted at depths of around 7-8cm with an approximately equal distance of 7-8 between plants.

After blooming, allow the foliage of the Chionodoxa to die back on its own, this is part of the cycle of storing energy in the bulb for the following season. Chionodoxa are inclined to naturalise areas and left alone with multiple over the years. Great for naturalising, Chionodoxa also do well in pots and containers or at the front of borders or beds where their blooms can be most appreciated.
