What is Snowflake

Snowflake (scientific name: Leucojum aestivum) is a cold-resistant bulb plant of the genus Snowflake of the family Amaryllidaceae, native to Central and South Europe. The stems are thin and elongated like leaves and the stem height is 30 to 40 cm. In the spring, 1 to 4 white small flowers will bloom, extending the scattering inflorescence from the stem tip. Small flowers have a bell shape similar to valley (Suzuran), with green spots at the tip of the flower. Leaves are similar to daffodils (daffodils), they are thin wide linear.
