This is one of our favorite reliable bulbs here. The leaves emerge in November or so, and give some needed greenery along the front of many flower beds until the flowers bloom in spring. Then we get rows of beautiful light blue blossoms.
These bulbs have multiplied profusely, they have been shared and divided many times. I love the aroma they emit when I pull weeds that try to live amongst these small plants.
Chionodoxa are lush in front of these bricks, they will be ready to divide in another year. As these bulbs grow too thick through the years, they get divided to edge another bed.
I have read that deer and animals are supposed to ignore these plants, probably because of their scent. The local animals have not read the same gardening book, as I always find some nibbles on the greenery.
Remembering the name of these cute little flowers, has always been a challenge for me. A search in a catalog of spring bulbs brings it back to mind.
