Very pretty with crepe myrtles or with the dogwoods up front? Snowdrop
One of the earliest harbingers of spring, the delicate-looking snowdrop is tough enough to poke through snow in Northern gardens and to bloom through winter in the South. Lovely in meadows, beds and borders, graceful snowdrops feature a solitary bell-shaped white flower
tipped in green.
Favorite varieties include the reliable Galanthus nivalis that spreads slowly and the bigger-flowered 'Sam Arnott' with heart-shaped green markings.
