Leucojum

This "white violet" will have heads turning.

Little known and underused in spring gardens, leucojum earns its name from the Greek "white violet." Larger, but similar in looks to galanthus, leucojum has nodding, bell-shaped blooms borne on stalks that, depending on the variety, are 9 to 14 inches tall.

The plants hold their bloom for 1 to 2 weeks. Leucojum autumnale is a small, fall-blooming cousin.
