Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) are some of the earliest bulbs—and flowers in general—to bloom in spring.

Snowdrops (Galanthus nivalis) are a sign that spring is right around the corner. Their nodding white flowers are hardy and often pop up while there is still snow on the ground. Grow snowdrops in full sun to part shade. They make a great border plant and add a delicate look to rock gardens.
