  • A carpet of spring colour
  • Virtually maintenance free
With a beauty that belies its resilience, Puschkinia will form a carpet of spring colour that is virtually maintenance free. These tough little bulbs emerge in a flurry of palest blue flowers, etched with dark powder blue stripes. Russian snowdrops enjoy well drained soils and make an eye-catching alternative to traditional spring bulbs. Grow them in borders and rockeries, or naturalise them in grass. Height: 15cm (6"). Spread: 10cm (4").Bulb size 5/6cm.

Plant puschkinia bulbs at a depth of 10cm (4") and 7cm (3") apart. Choose a sunny or semi shaded position in well drained soil. Alternatively grow Russian snowdrops in containers of free draining compost or naturalise them in informal areas of grass.
After flowering, allow the foliage to die back naturally as this will help to feed the bulbs for next year's growth. Avoid mowing areas of grass where puschkinia bulbs are naturalised until they have completely died back.
