    Originating from the Greek islands, this snowdrop emerges with broad green linear foliage and comes into bloom in late winter. This dwarf bulbous perennial is named after Icarus with wing-shaped markings on the petals of the single white nodding flowers.

  • Garden care: Plant out in naturalistic drifts, either as soon as they arrive or after they have finished flowering. Where bulbs are planted in grass, wait until after the leaves have died back before getting the mower out! Once established, divide large colonies immediately after flowering while the leaves are still green.
  • Humans/Pets: Harmful if eaten
