Snowflake Autumn (10 Bulbs)

Autumn snowflake, also known as Leucojum autumnalis and Acis autumnalis, has a rich botanical history dating back centuries. Initially called Leucojum autumnale by Carl Linnaeus in the 1700s, autumn snowflake was later included in a new genus and renamed to Acis autumnalis, which incurred heavy debate, with many refusing to use the new name. Regardless of its botanical name, this hardy bulb, native to southern Europe, is popular with beneficial insects and gardeners alike. Part of the Amaryllidaceae family, flowers appear on bare stems, with foliage emerging after the fact.

How to grow

Plant bulbs in a well-draining soil during summer. Choose a site with full sun to part shade to ensure maximum flowering. Plants will grow in full shade, but flowering will be compromised. Dormant during dry periods, very little additional water is required. Mulch to retain moisture and reduce weed competition. Remove foliage once but be sure to mark the area to avoid accidental bulb damage. Frost tolerant.
