Snowdrops are an heirloom bulb that grows wild in Europe.

As their name suggests, they have white flowers that bloom in late winter or very early in the spring, often while snow is still on the ground.

They are deer-resistant, rabbit-resistant and the squirrels don’t like them.

Snowdrops will naturalize and create a pretty ground cover in the spring. But they go dormant in the summer so plant them with other shade ground covers (like Hostas and Ferns) to cover the empty space.

Plant the bulbs 5″ deep and 2″ to 3″ apart.
