Spent Snowdrops

February 23, 2011 at 6:30 pm 2 comments

Two years ago, I planted some snowdrops and crocuses around the rather new ornamental cherry tree (yes, I know more crocuses but I cant get enough of them). So when they pop up year after year during the freezing winter months, its always sad to see them go. But as they die back they are then replaced with the later flowering crocuses which liven up the place once again.

These are Galanthus Nivalis, in a couple of years they’ll start to bulk up creating natural little clumps.

Do you grow snowdrops?

    No snow drops but we have a similarly looking flower called rain lillies. I’m waiting for them to poke up their heads any day as we had such a big rain yesterday.
