Plant of the Week 03/26/2021
Glory of Snow Chionodoxa forbesii Zone 3-8
During late winter/early spring, imagine beautiful lily shaped, sky-blue flowers emerging above the glistening snowfall. It will make you feel like you're in a floral winter wonderland!
Glory of Snow (as its name implies) is an early-blooming bulb that can help knock away those winter blues (or give that last snowfall an unforgettable look). Reaching 6" tall, the flowers also come in pink or white. These flowers are easy to maintain.
Plant in fall approximately 4" deep and 3" apart. Plant in full to partial sun for best growth. Once blooms are spent cut stem down to about 1" and leave the foliage to wither.
These can be aggressive and spread quickly which can be good or bad depending on what you are trying to do with these plants. If they are overgrowing an area, simply dig up some of them and transplant them in another area of your garden or give the bulbs to a friend!
