Snowdrops help herald the return of Spring. They are very persistent and even a late snowfall will not that stop them. Often paired with crocuses. They have a slight fragrance so plant them by your walkways. They also can be used for arrangements. After a long winter, it is nice to pick a bouquet from your own backyard.
'Flore Pleno' is a double snowdrop and was introduced around 1874 and are practically deer and rodent proof. Plant them around crocuses, tulips or other bulbs and flowers that the deer, rabbits, chipmunks and other critters like to munch on.
Just like crocuses, they don’t even need a flowerbed as they will be long gone when it is time to mow your lawn. A natural technique is to take a few bulbs and just toss them in front of you – then plant where they land!
