About This Plant

Full sun to partial shade; a reliable and hardy Southern bulb with lily-like winter foliage and blooms in early-to-mid-spring. The bell-shaped flowers are white and have a small green dot on the tip of each petal. Though it resembles Snowdrops (Galanthus sp.), they are in fact separate species, although many gardeners refer to them interchangeably.

Maintenance

Cut back as needed after leaves die in late spring.
