Vernum is much shorter than aestivum and i excellent for the damp/shadier areas of the garden that do not become waterlogged. The flowers are pure white and quite magnificent in appearance. This variety has an AGM (award of garden merit) given to it by the RHS after a number of years of trials for its great garden performance. Leucojum can be left to naturalise for many years and like daffodills will quickly bulk up. The flowers appear in Feb/March and like most bulbs during this period they need to have access to well rotterd compost or organic matter (phosphate and potash) during the growing season. If not already in the soil add bone meal or similar to ensure they stay health for many years.
