They appear like small blue stars with a white center. Full sun or dappled shade is suitable, though they grow best in an open, sunny position. If you have never used bulbs before, you should try this one and immediately enjoy its easy growth. They bloom very early in the spring season.
Chionodoxa Luciliae is very similar in appearance to Chionodoxa forbesii. The primary differences are that C. luciliae has slightly larger flowers with less pointed tepals on shorter stems rising to as much as 6” tall with fewer flowers per stem.
Chionodoxa are commonly called “Glory of the Snow” because of their early flowering. It is so-named because in some climates it blooms early enough that it pokes its little bright blue six-petaled flowers right out of the snow. They are very hardy and will increase freely over the years and they are super for naturalizing. Chionodoxa Luciliae is generally free from pests and diseases.
