GLORY OF THE SNOW - ALBA

  • Mid Spring Flowering
  • 10 Pack
  • Great for naturalizing
  • Zone 3

One of the earliest and loveliest spring flowering bulbs, Chionodoxa luciliae (Glory of the Snow) “Alba” is a bulbous perennial boasting loose one-sided racemes of up to 8 upward-facing, large pure white flowers with a spread measuring approximately 10” across. Blooming in the early spring (Mar-Apr), “Alba’s” charming blossoms are borne atop the foliage of 2 - 3 narrow, semi-erect, basal leaves. In the fall (Sept-Dec), plant the bulbs in well-draining soil, under full sun or partial shade. Plant the bulbs at a depth of 2” while leaving 3” of space between bulbs. An easy-to-grow variety that naturalizes well once established. “Alba” is resistant to deer and other critters while also being disease tolerant. Works best planted in sweeping drifts in woodlands, lawns, or under deciduous trees. Also looks great as clusters in rock gardens.
