Snowdrop(Galanthus)USDA zones: 3 to 8Bloom period: Early springHeight: 6 to 12 inchesHow to plant: 3 to 4 inches deep and 3 inches apartLight requirement: Full sun when in bloom; light shade at other timesWater requirement: Regular water throughout the year (unless the soil is covered in snow)This is a cold-weather favorite, as its common name implies, needing temperatures below 32 degrees Fahrenheit to do its best. It can even handle a small amount of snow once it has bloomed, and because it likes sun when blooming but shade afterward, it’s a natural choice under deciduous trees and shrubs. The flowers are perfect for a natural woodlands garden or tucked into a rock garden. A similar plant is Leucojum; it and snowdrop are often sold under each other’s name.
Planting notes. Look for snowdrop bulbs in late summer or early fall at nurseries or browse online suppliers like Brent and Becky’s for a wider selection. The bulbs are small, so don’t plant them as singles, or they’ll be lost — make a wide, shallow hole and put 15 to 20 bulbs in for a good show, then repeat. Order enough so you have something to cheer you up next year.

Snowdrops - The bulbs are small, so don’t plant them as singles, or they’ll be lost — make a wide, shallow hole and put 15 to 20 bulbs in for a good show, then repeat. Order enough so you have something to cheer you up next year.
