#ProPlantTips for Care:

Growing zones 3 to 8 can leave Chionodoxa bulbs in the ground, or even in a large planter. This is possible because Chionodoxa bulbs require several weeks of 'chill hours' before they will sprout. 

  • Full Sun to Part Shade
  • Enriched Well-Drained Soil
  • Cannot Tolerate Soggy Conditions
  • Cold-Hardy Perennial Bulb
