For a northern gardener, few things are more anticipated than the appearance of the first Snowdrops. They are a sure sign that the earth, which has lain dormant for what seems like decades, is reawakening. The Galanthus we offer are fine choices for naturalizing in both sunny and shady locations. This mixture allows you to enjoy species and varieties, and thereby extend the Snowdrop bloom season. Plant them liberally where you won't miss the welcome message they convey: "Spring is on the way." Not labeled. 25 bulbs cover 2 sq ft.
The species in this small genus bloom very early, and their graceful white flowers are extremely welcome in a landscape as the snow retreats. They thrive in rich, woodsy soil and show best in deciduous shade, under bushes or trees or along woodland paths. Like other members of the Amaryllis family, Snowdrops are avoided by deer and voles.

HOW PLANTS ARE SHIPPED
The size of the plants we ship has been selected to reduce the shock of transplanting. For some, this means a large, bareroot crown. Others cannot travel bareroot or transplant best if grown in containers. We ship these perennials and annuals in 1 pint pots, except as noted. We must point out that many perennials will not bloom the first year after planting, but will the following year, amply rewarding your patience. We ship bulbs as dormant, bare bulbs, sometimes with some wood shavings or moss. Shrubs, Roses, vines, and other woody plants may be shipped bareroot or in pots. The size of the pot is noted in the quick facts for each item.
