This hardy spring bulb flowers after daffodils. To get a long spring display, plant Snowflakes, daffodils and bluebells together. Flowering will commence wtih the snowflakes, followed by daffodils, and then the bluebells, each in succession as the other fades. They are perfect for naturalising under deciduous trees, or in a woodland setting.
