Our glorious mixture will produce an early flowering carpet of star-shaped, six-petaled clustered flowers in pale to deep blue with white, pink and violet accents, all with white centers atop dark stems with sparse, narrow foliage. Commonly known as Glory of the Snow since it is one of spring’s early bloomers, it is deer-resistant and naturalizes readily in well-draining soil and in full to partial sunlight. As it matures over time, when it’s happy where it’s planted, it naturalizes by bulb offsets (called bulbils: baby bulbs on the sides of the mother bulb you’ve planted), and maybe even by self-sowing seed. It’s terrific planted en masse in garden borders, sunny woodland borders, rock gardens and in irregular river-like swaths. You’ll need about nine bulbs per square foot. (Square footage is determined multiplying the planting site’s length times its width.) Bulb size: 5 cm/up. Full to partial sunlight.


Bloom time in horticultural zone 5: April. Plant 4" deep and 4" apart. HZ: 3-8. Height: 5" to 6".
