Leucojum, the so-called Snowflakes, is a very small genus of bulbs from Europe, related to snowdrops, Galanthus, but differing in having six equal sized petals. The genus now consists of only a very few species, as the dwarf species with solid (not hollow) flower stems, narrow foliage and unmarked flowers, have been restored to their original genus, Acis (which see)
Leucojum are offered only during their dormant season in the autumn, when they are sent damp packed and leaf-dormant.
L. vernum is best grown in the garden in a damp, humus-rich soil in light shade. They are best not planted in full sun.
