Autumn Snowflakes
Family Amaryllidaceae
Name Acis autumnalis
Synonym Leucojum autumnale
Common Name Autumn snowflakes
Etymology
Acis From Greek aci meaning pointed or sharp.
autumnalis From Latin autumnalis meaning autumnal, referring to the flowers that are produced in the autumn.

See also:  Bulbs, Corms & Tubers


These miniature bulbs have thin grass-like leaves. Dainty white flowers appear above the foliage in the Autumn on wiry thin stems. A very nice bulb for small shady corners.

This species was moved back to Acis after genetic studies show that it should be seperated from Leucojum.
