Snowdrops are little cuties and are one of the first bulbs to herald the coming of spring, they will even bloom during a snowstorm! They have small white umbrella-shaped flowers that hang like a little lantern over straps of dark green leaves. Snowdrops are excellent for use in borders, woodland gardens, or naturalizing in your lawn. They are also beautiful paired with crocuses. They are a very easy-to-grow bulb and will give you joy for years to come! Deer resistant.
