Thanks to Kerry, I now know that the plant label identified this flower incorrectly. It is not a Snowdrop; it is a Snowflake! Thanks, Kerry!

Great picture. I can’t grow snowdrops this far south, but I do have summer snowflakes which look very similar. I just love these little bulbs showing up in early spring. They get me ready for spring to really blossom forth.

Wonderful photo! But I’m near 100% positive that these are not snow drops, but “Leucojum Aestivum,” or Snowflake. They hang in umbels of 3, and have the green dots on the outside.

You’re right, Kerry. Thanks for the identification!
