Snowdrops (Galanthus), one of the earliest flowering bulbs of the year
Snowdrops may be small, but they never go unnoticed. This is partly because snowdrops are one of the earliest flowering spring bulbs there are. Plant snowdrop bulbs in fall and when the delicate snowdrop flowers start to bloom, they hold the promise of spring and warmer days to come after long, dark dreary winter days when the winter just seems to last forever.
Snowdrops may look delicate, but they’re tough-as-nails little plants
Snowdrops may look delicate, but they’re tough as nails little plants, that can even sprout through snow. These little spring bulbs need a season to establish themselves, so don’t be disappointed at the amount of blooms they produce during the first season. As soon as they’re established, Snowdrops will naturalize in your garden and reward you with an abundance of flowers. For spectacular results, it pays to plant a lot of bulbs to adorn your early spring garden.
