Snowflakes are native to Central and Southern Europe and occasionally can be found naturalized around old homesites. Often confused with Snowdrops, which bloom in early spring, Snowflakes are larger and more robust. They have been in cultivation since the late sixteenth century. Snowflakes should be planted in the fall and then left undisturbed to allow for naturalization.
