Summer Snowflake – Leucojum aestivum (in the green)


Actually more spring flowering (Apr-May) with 18” foliage and white flowers like large snowdrops, this thrives in moist or even boggy conditions, sun or partial shade. Also called the Loddon Lily as it was found along the banks of the Loddon a tributary of the Thames, its native status is as hotly disputed as the Snakes Head Fritillary. We now just supply this form as it proves much the best performer, originally selected by W. Robinson from his Sussex Estate. AGM
