Acis autumnalis

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 autumnalis is the autumn snowflake, similar to the snowdrop, to which it is related, but the six tepals are all equal. It produces its delicate, hanging, white flowers in autumn, over a long period.
