Acis ionica subsp. vlorense

The small-flowered species of Leucojum, the snowflakes, have recently been transferred into a new genus, called Acis. They make clumps of slender, grassy leaves, and have delicate nodding flowers, white in most species, some flowering in spring and others in autumn. Donít leave them to the rough and tumble of the wild parts of the garden, like snowdrops, but give them a special place, where they can be appreciated and cared for.

Acis ionica subsp. vlorense is the form of this white-flowered species that comes from Albania. It prefers rather cooler, damper positions than the standard Greek form.
