Leucojum autumnale var. oporanthum

A show of delicate white, in a south facing bed of the rock garden, is a planting of Leucojum autumnale var. oporanthum. These tiny bulbs send up a thin stalk on which a white flower opens. Needing an open sun drenched spot to flower well, this Moroccan native is the harbinger of the autumn flowering bulbs. Several flowers to each stem, buds pointed vertically up like a biro point. The inner tip of the white petals have a crystallised appearance. Strands of light linear foliage cover the ground beneath.
