      Comments about American Meadows Snowdrop Bulbs:

      These just bloomed here in Western Washington and they are just charming. I had to drop a big fir for safety reasons and put them in the bed where the tree used to stand. Not great soil, but they are lovely there. I look forward to them perennializing over the years.

        Comments about American Meadows Snowdrop Bulbs:

        Used in a circle around a viburnum that leafs out later. Will order more to create another circle just inside the existing one, for more impact in the early spring. All bloomed, some inconsistent sizes.

          Comments about American Meadows Snowdrop Bulbs:

          I wanted to add snow drops to the garden for early blooms and was not disappointed. After the never-ending winter of 2013/2014 here in the northeast, these little troopers emerged healthy and strong much to everyones delight. I planted them under viburnum bushes and anticipate an increase in blooms as the seasons unfold.

              Comments about American Meadows Snowdrop Bulbs:

              I scattered a variety of bulbs throughout the flowerbed under my picture window and these were the first to bloom. They are so cute, last quite a while, and bloomed while there was still snow on the ground. Thanks to the polar vortex they had to struggle through this year, hopefully they'll come through even better next year.

                  USDA Hardiness Planting Zones

                  To determine if a plant is sufficiently cold hardy, the USDA created numbered zones indicating winter low temperatures; the lower the zone number the colder the winter.

                  • If the coldest winter temperature expected in your area is -15°F (zone 5) then any plants rated zones 3-5 will survive the winter temperatures in your area.
                  • If you live in very warm winter areas (zones 9-11) plants with zones 3-4 ratings are not recommended. The lack of freezing winter temperatures do not provide a time for winter dormancy (rest).

                  Find Your Planting Zone:
