Description
Every bulb gardener knows that Snowdrops are the very earliest bulbs to bloom, and are tiny. Well, now they have a 'giant' companion, and these new beauties wait until most other bulbs are finished, and then raise their beautiful nodding white flowers on stems up to 16.' They look a bit like a tall version of Lily of the Valley...a great new addition to extend your bulb season. Easy and dependable perennial.

Comments about Giant Snowdrop Bulbs:

I buy most of American Meadows products when they're on sale, and typically I choose the 50% off sales. Often, I am disappointed because only 50% of the bulbs, or slightly more, come up. Because of that, I often think to myself that there is no such thing as a 50% off sale at American Meadows. Not so with these bulbs. I think ALL of them came up.

They're blooming now, and I cannot express how much I enjoy them, along my walkway, by my front step, and in a miniature garden right next to the parking space beside the driveway. These beautiful blooms are the just the thing to elicit a smile when leaving the house, or when returning home in spring when the season is just getting started. A "happy" welcome to the outdoor season and to home all at the same time. These are very pretty!

If all customers who order these bulbs make their purchase based on the photo and the product description, and if they get products as good as the ones I got in my 50% off sale (an advance purchase that I paid for and waited months for delivery last fall), and if they plant them according to the planting instructions, I cannot imagine that they'll be anything but happy with giant snowdrops. Based on my experience with this purchase on this particular occasion, I can highly recommend these bulbs to other customers!
