Your Daffodils' Best Friend!

Carpet the early spring garden in rich color!
Begin the garden in glorious style each year with Glory-of-the-Snow, a friendly little bulb with sprays of nearly a dozen star-shaped blooms of blue and white. Pushing up through the final frost, this low grower makes a great foreground planting to daffodils, and gets the flower garden off to a splendid start!

Reaching just 4 to 6 inches high, the flowering stems set sprays of 5 to 10 blooms, each upturned and star-shaped. Very long-lasting, they make a lovely carpet of blue and white, the fresh green foliage held well below the flowers.

Glory-of-the-Snow is an ideal foreground planting to "leggy" spring bulbs such as daffodils, and a nice contrast with other flowering groundhuggers such as crocus. It is easy to grow -- just plant it and forget it, choosing a site in either sun or partial shade. Soil drainage must be good, but otherwise Glory-of-the-Snow has no requirements for success! This is a bulb to dot throughout the garden in any bare spot -- along pathways, in the front of the foundation, in clusters beside garden furniture and other high-visibility areas.

Expect these small plants to spread up to 6 inches wide and to naturalize freely over time. Enjoy! Zones 4 to 9. Pack of 20 bulbs.
