The Spring Snowflake...Leucojum vernum

28th February, 2013

The Spring Snowflake is a delightfully fulsome little flower, akin to a Snowdrop in a bodice I reckon.....I've always liked bodices......I find they go well with my fishnet stockings.

It can be grown from bulbs quite easily but is very slow to bulk up in the garden. There is a Summer snowflake (Leucojum astevium) however I dont like the balance of that particular plant, for my taste it has too much foliage and a pissy little flower by comparison....yet it can look effective in places and i am often asked for it when its in flower in the summer border.
