Sometimes there's a plant that is so carefree and wonderful I want to shout about it from the top of the rooftop.
Chionodoxa forbesii or Glory of Snow is one of those plants.
It's a small bulb planted in the fall that naturalizes easily. It's great to plant with daffodils, both bloom around the same time.
I started with only 15 bulbs a few years ago and now have a great colony of the plant.
Like most small spring bulbs they are only around for a couple of weeks depending on the weather, but they area star when they bloom.
There are several cultivars including another I grow called 'Pink Giant.' I like it, but it's not a tough at forbesii. It's something a little different and will naturalize, not with the fervor of forbesii. Here's a look at some other varieties from Brent and Becky's Bulbs.
Make a note to plant Glory of Snow, you'll enjoy the pretty blue blossoms every spring for decades to come.
