The Chionodoxa, commonly known as the Glory of the Snow, is a family member of the Asparagaceae. This early-blooming flower is one of the first bulbs to flower in spring. Chionodoxa shows its face from March to April. The flowers appear in white, blue, pink, and purple. The small starry flowers provide a lot of colour in the still bare winter landscapes. Chionodoxas naturalize easily and will cover a field in no time. De Vroomen has been selling Chionodoxa flower bulbs for bulk prices for almost 95 years.
How to grow Chionodoxa
Chionodoxa flower bulbs must be planted in mid to late autumn. Make sure you plant the flower bulbs before the frost, and before the ground freezes. Plant the bulbs about 3” (7 cm) deep and 3” (7 cm) apart. For the best visual effect, plant chionodoxa flower bulbs in clusters. This way, you create a big splash of colour. Chionodoxas make a perfect combination with other spring flowers, like snowdrops, scilla, and crocuses. Choose a place that is sunny during early spring. The flower bulbs are hardy to zone 4-9. Plant the flower bulbs in well-drained, humid soil, but make sure the ground never gets soggy.
Chionodoxa appears in many sizes and colours. This early spring flower is one of our favourites. Adore the bright colours in early spring and watch Chionodoxa grow under trees, on lawns, on borders, and even in pots. These are the most popular Chionodoxas available at De Vroomen:
