A lovely spring-flowering bulb is the so-called
Summer Snowflake, Leucojum aestivum. Why this is called the summer snowflake when it flowers in spring is a mystery to me! It grows quite tall, around 2 feet
when in flower, and spreads slowly to form clumps. It's very easy to grow, and doesn't seem to mind what soil or aspect it's growing in.
