Giant Snowflake – Leucojum Gravetye Giant

giantsnowdropMy latest purchase for the garden in the Giant Snowflake, Leucojum Gravetye Giant.

The flowers are like large snowdrops and are borne on long bright green stems of about 14ins (36cm); they are a great addition to your Spring display.

I bought mine from B&Q, and for £3.98 there were five stems, some in flower some not. Once flowering is over I will plant the bulbs in the ground whilst still in the green. Hopefully within a few years they will have increased into a good sized clump.

I have had a look around the internet but haven’t found anyone selling them in the green but I’ll have a look again when the spring flowering bulbs go on sale and up-date the post if I find a good supplier.
