Glory of the snow is an appropriate name for these beautiful low-growing bulbs from Turkey. They are some of the first to flower in spring and, when planted generously, create a dazzling carpet of stars borne in dainty sprays. Flowering lasts for three to four weeks, after which both the flowers and the foliage quickly fade from sight. In autumn, plant them liberally 8cm (3in) deep, under deciduous shrubs, beside hedges and in patches in the lawn.
