Plant your bulbs once the weather has turned consistently cool, after a killing frost or two, when the soil temperature is below 55 degrees F but well before the ground has frozen.

Leucojum Aestivum has been in my garden for years, the pendant shaped flowers with the tiny green tips are fascinating! A beautiful naturalizer.
