Sometimes referred to as 'confetti flowers', because they multiply so freely that they can be scattered across a border or through grass, to give splendid colour after crocuses have faded. We grow them in a herbaceous border, where they provide colour before the bigger plants get growing, and the bulbs then disappear for the rest of the season.
Chionodoxa luciliae Gigantea Group refers to a form with the usual sky blue colour flowers, with white centres, several large blooms to each stem.
