Snowdrops can brighten a landscape dramatically
Snowdrops can brighten a landscape dramatically: Plant these bulbs in late summer for an early spring display. Snowdrops are usually the first flowers to appear, brightening a dreary landscape with their white, drooping flowers.
As these are small plants that will not have much of an impact individually, always plant their bulbs closely together.

This will create a showy spring display. Do not remove the plant’s foliage until it has turned yellow, so that your snowdrops have a chance to store nutrients for next year.

Note: These are poisonous plants for humans, dogs and cats alike.
Hence, do not allow pets or children to eat them. You should also not work with the plants without wearing garden gloves. Some people can develop a skin irritation from handling them without protection.

Uses for snowdrops in landscape design:
You can plant snowdrop bulbs under deciduous trees without worrying that your snowdrops will not receive sufficient sunlight.  This is because they bloom and begin storing nutrients before the leaves come out on trees.
This fact gives you a lot flexibility.   Snowdrops are also well suited for rock gardens, as they are petite flowers that will fit in anywhere.

Feature of snowdrops:
Snowdrops are among the earliest bloomers in the yard.
Snowdrops may not even wait for the snow to melt before emerging from their winter sleep.
Instead they can push right up through the snow or any other winter weather.

Sun and soil requirements:
Snowdrops take full sun to partial shade.
Grow them in a well-drained soil that has plenty of humus.
Snowdrop is perennial plant, which means that it can survive more than two years in the wild.
Snowdrops are symbol of consolation and hope, purity and cleansing.
In conclusion, this is the perfect flower to have in your garden.
