Summer Snowflake Leucojum aestivum
Common names include the Loddon lily.
The pretty flowers of this perennial spring bulb can be seen from mid-spring. The white nodding, bell-shaped blooms hang from upright stems and are softly chocolate-scented.
Ideal for woodland settings, damp meadows, containers, rock gardens and garden flower beds and borders, the summer snowflake naturalises well, multiplying over time, and looks at its best in large drifts. It is deer and rabbit resistant and will tolerate growing in boggy ground.
Spring wildflower bulbs 'in the green' are supplied when they are actively growing. This can be a more reliable way to transplant wildflower bulb species than from dormant bulbs planted in autumn. Wildflower bulbs in the green can be easier to plant as it is clear where the bulbs have been planted. In most cases, the plants will flower the following spring.
Our highest-quality wildflower and meadow bulbs are grown in the UK from British plants.
