Another Tiny Treasure
This is another tiny early flowering spring bulb called Chionodoxa sardensis, it is only about 10 cms tall and the vivid blue flower is 1.5 - 2 cms wide. I have a small patch of them that is slowly spreading and the colour is as bright as the photo. They are related to Scilla (Bluebells) and their common name is Glory-of-the -snow. Can you just imagine how gorgeous they would look popping up in a snow covered woodland?
