This happy little flower always makes me smile. The blue stars seem to sparkle as the gardening season begins.
In 1999, I planted 30 Glory-of-the-Snow bulbs on top of some tulip bulbs.
The tulip bulbs were planted 6 to 8 inches deep. I filled the planting hole with soil up to 3 inches from the top, added the Glory-of-the-Snow bulbs then added the rest of the soil on top. Over the years, the tiny bulbs have multiplied. They also moved around the front garden with transplants and new plants.
After blooming, the leaves fade away and the bulb goes dormant for the summer – to burst into blue abundance next spring.
I wish I had a hundred more.
