– Glory of the Snow.
Flowers blue, in March.
A very hardy and early-blooming bulb, closely
allied to the Scillas. The form most commonly
grown is Chionodoxa Lucilliæ, whose flower
is a light, rather greenish-blue with a white
centre. Chionodoxa Sardensis is of a deeper colour. The
bulbs should be planted three inches deep and
about the same distance apart, in September or
October, in patches or lines, and they may be
left undisturbed for several years.
