Mount Everest Giant Snowdrop

Mount Everest Giant Snowdrop

Get an early start on the gardening season with a strikingly pretty, new addition to our lineup—Mount Everest Giant Snowdrop! Boasting larger flowers than its more commonly known cousin, this elwesii hybrid is an exquisite late-winter bloomer that bears 1-2" bell-shaped blossoms of snowy white. Richly contrasting, deep green foliage makes a fine background, allowing admirers to better see the snowdrops. Snowdrops are highly coveted by gardeners and landscapers for their ability to essentially add a third flowering season to outdoor spaces. Makes a great ground cover or rock garden planting.
