A traditional herald of spring, the common snowdrop has become glamorous, with many new forms available. It's no wonder -- this classic offers nodding white bells, dotted and underskirted with green and hanging from arching stems. They have a light, sweet fragrance. Snowdrops are very easy to grow, requiring only a well-drained soil. They prefer a shaded location and will spread naturally within a few years.
