Plant of the Day
Tuesday 5 April 2016
A wonderful display of Puschkinia scilloides var. libanotica (Russian snowdrops) (according to the label) form a sea of blue in the garden at Sissinghurst, Kent, U.K. The flower spikes carry up to 10 pale blue to white flowers, which frequently have a faint blue stripe down the length of each petal. Here they have naturalised under trees and shrubs and associate well with the larger leaved herbaceous plants such as Helleborus and Paeonia.
