Bulbs and bulblike plants, Perennials
From Europe. Easy-to-grow, permanent plants with strap-shaped leaves and nodding, bell-shaped white flowers with six green-tipped segments. Good naturalized under deciduous trees, in shrub borders or orchards, or on cool slopes. Plant in fall, setting bulbs 3–4 in. deep, 4 in. apart. Give some water during summer dormancy; L. aestivum can get by without any if the soil is shaded. Do not disturb clumps until they are really crowded. When this occurs, dig clumps after the foliage dies down, then divide and replant immediately.Leucojum vernum
Grows clumps of 9-in.-long, strap-shaped leaves with foot-tall stems, each with a single (occasionally two) white flower with six green-tipped segments.

In earliest spring, each foot-long stem bears a single large white flower (occasionally two).
