A welcome sign of spring approaching, snowdrops (Galanthus spp.) pop up in mid- to late winter and begin blooming in late winter to early spring, often when there is still snow on the ground. Their dainty, nodding, white flowers look lovely with hellebores (Helleborus spp.) and other early bloomers. They self-sow readily and can form large patches in shaded borders and woodland gardens. The plants die back to the underground bulbs in late spring. Snowdrops are reportedly hardy in USDA Hardiness Zones 4 to 8.
2022-collected seeds no longer available. I hope to collect again in late May 2023. These seeds are most likely from typical Galanthus nivalis, but there may be some seeds of other forms or species mixed in. Each packet contains at least 30 seeds, mixed with some moist vermiculite, and stored warm (around 72°F) since the day I collected and cleaned them. I will have these seeds available only in June, because it is so important for them to be sown fresh.
Please read the germination information as well before ordering.
