Galanthus nivalis

Snowdrops are usually the first to bloom each season, sometimes pushing their way through the snow to poke out their milky-white blooms. The flowers on a stem look like three little, white, milk-drops on a green ribbon. They are usually a very small plant with little blossoms, so planting them in clusters or groupings make a better showing than one or two bulbs scattered in a garden bed. Once planted, they will provide a life-time of early spring beauty in your garden.
