Galanthus


More Information About Galanthus

Galanthus, which literally means milk flower, blooms during winter months and is a great choice for naturalizing in meadows and lawns. Galanthus is native to parts of Europe and the eastern Mediterranean region and is closely related to leucojum and acis.

Like most amaryllids, galanthus is a bulb and thrives in well-drained soils and winter sun. Commonly known as snowdrop, galanthus emerges very early in the year and often pops up through a blanket of snow. Galanthus pairs well with other early spring bulbs such as narcissus and muscari. Some galanthus species contain galantamine, a compound used to treat Alzheimer's disease. When you are ready to buy galanthus for your garden, check out our online list of galanthus for sale.
