Snowdrops (here, Galanthus elwesii) peek their heads above the snow.Planting these earliest of bulbs in a warm microclimate will ensure reliable February blooms every year.

Common snowdrop is one of the first bulbs to appear, and it’s blooming now in areas where winters are mild. Over the next few weeks, more will begin appearing in gardens as the days lengthen and the temperatures moderate. These diminutive cold-hardy flowers can be a powerful antidote to winter as they push up through snow and ice, with delicate, nodding flowers that symbolize purity and renewal. While the rest of the garden sleeps, they take center stage. I love to see them in January or February forming a white mass in the woodland, bursting forth like white froth — and then they go dormant and disappear. They’re perennial bulbs and they naturalize, so once you have them you’ll get more, which is a good thing.
