Few Spring bulbs are as elegant as the Russian Snowdrop, also known as the Lebanon Striped Squill. The gleaming white blooms are produced in dense clusters, each brightly striped with pale blue. Despite its delicate appearance, Puschkinia scilloides var. libanotica is no shrinking violet! This vigorous bulb is tough and reliable, coping in almost any free draining soil, and enjoying hot summers when their bulbs can bake in the sun. These hardy bulbs make a fine alternative to traditional Snowdrops. Grow them in borders and rockeries, or naturalise them in grass. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 10cm (4").

How to Grow
Grow Russian snowdrops in any well drained garden soil in full sun or dappled shade. Spring flowering Puschkinia bulbs should be planted during the autumn, at a depth of 10cm (4") and at a distance of 7cm (3") apart. Alternatively grow them in containers of free draining compost or naturalise them in informal areas of grass.
More Info
Allow the strap like foliage to die back naturally after flowering. Avoid mowing areas of grass where puschkinia bulbs are naturalised until they have completely died back.
