Description How to Grow More Info Delivery Reviews
You could be forgiven for thinking this hardy bulb was a Snowdrop. The strap-like foliage and white, nodding flowers are certainly reminiscent! Don’t be mistaken – Leucojum aestivum is taller, flowering later in the season, during April and May. Up to 8 bell-shaped blooms, each tipped with chartreuse-green are produced on each stem, rising gracefully from amongst the neat clumps of foliage. Commonly named Summer Snowflake, this attractive bulb is ideal for naturalising in areas of grass or planting in generous clumps throughout the front of borders and rockeries. Height: 50cm (20"). Spread: 10cm (4").

Leucojum aestivum particularly dislikes dry soil in summer so water regularly during the growing season until bulbs are fully established. When growing summer snowflakes, it is essential to allow their foliage to die back naturally, to feed the bulb for the following year. Avoid mowing areas of grass where bulbs are naturalised until their foliage has completely died back.
Plant summer snowflake bulbs in autumn. Choose a position in sun or semi-shade in reliably moist, well drained soil. Leucojum aestivum prefers a soil that is rich in organic matter so add some well rotted manure or compost to the soil. Plant summer snowflake bulbs at a depth of 10cm (4”), with the pointed end facing upwards. For natural looking drifts, gently cast them across the planting area and plant them where they land!
