When are the snowdrops blooming?
These fragile white flowers first appear from under the snow and mark the arrival of spring.
The snowdrop (galantus) is a small-leaved plant of the Amaryllis family. For almost the entire year, the bulb is underground and only at the very end of winter produces several thin leaves and a spike with a white flower that blooms for 3-4 weeks.
The time when snowdrops bloom depends on many factors - the geography of the area, the terrain and the time of arrival of spring.
In the southern regions, the first snowdrops appear in January; in the middle lane, flowering occurs at the end of February-March.
Much depends on the type of snowdrop. The snowdrop of Elvez blooms from February to March, the period of flowering of the snow-white snowdrop occurs in March-April, the folded snowdrop pleases with flowering in February-April, and the broadfoot snowdrop blooms in April.
