(aka: Acis autumnale) Although some botanists have ruthlessly kicked this gem out of the genus leucojum for having alternative sexual tendencies, we're not budging. The wire-thin 6" tall flower stalks emerge in September, topped with tiny white bells. The L. 'September Snow' flower stalks, purple toward the tips, add a nice contrast to the white flowers. The narrow 8" tall leaves which resemble grass seedlings emerge just after flowering. Given good drainage, we have found L. autumnalis to be very easy to grow in both sun and part shade, ana it is amazingly drought tolerant.
