Early Snowdrops Description

Delicate blooms herald winter's end.

White-winged teardrops pop open in earliest spring--or even late winter. They multiply fast and are very hardy. The snowdrop bulbs grow dainty flowers on emerald stems that are a captivating treat to behold in rock gardens, under trees, in the lawn and along paths. These snowdrops multiply rapidly and are a hardy plant.

Where can snowdrop bulbs grow?

Snowdrop bulbs grow best where there are cold or moderate winters. They do not perform well where there are warm winters. The bulbs prefer being grown in moist, well-drained soil where they receive shade, such as beneath trees or shrubs, or beside your house. They also add beauty to rock gardens and pathways.

When should I buy snowdrops?

You should buy snowdrop bulbs in fall. Plant the bulbs immediately after getting them to prevent them from drying out.

How deep should I plant my snowdrop bulbs?

Plant snowdrop bulbs 1-2" deep into the soil.

How can I spread my snowdrops?

Snowdrops have a mature spread of 2-3" and should be planted that far apart from each other.

What do snowdrops symbolize?

The white colour of the blooms symbolizes innocence and purity. Because snowdrops are among the first flowers to open at the end of winter, they also symbolize hope and new beginnings.

Are snowdrops poisonous to pets?

The bulbs, stems and leaves contain phenanthridine alkaloids that are poisonous to pets that ingest them. Bulbs are particularly toxic. Signs of poisoning include drooling, vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, abdominal pain and a drop in blood pressure and heart rate. If you believe your dog or cat has eaten snowdrop bulbs or plants, seek veterinary help immediately.Galanthus woronowii
