A relative of the ever-popular 'Snowdrop', which it closely resembles, this delicate beauty could be the variety you have been looking for.
Also known as the 'Summer Snowflake', this is remarkably tall, and flowers later than you would expect, during March and April.
Gently arching flower stems reach up to 50cm tall, and carry lovely, dainty pendant blooms typically in groups of three to five, but sometimes as many as seven! The beautiful flowers are pure white with a green spot at the end of each petal.
Leucojum prefer to grow in moist and fertile soil, making it a great choice for planting around water margins such as by a pond or stream. It’s also happy in borders and when grown in pots, as it quickly establishes itself and naturalises, increasing your stock.

Lift and divide clumps every few years to stop them becoming overcrowded as they naturalise.
