Chionodoxa luciliae, common name Glory of the snow, is an easily grown bulb that self seeds. Chionodoxa luciliae is sometimes referred to as Chionodoxa siehei. Every stem has one or two flowers which are proudly raised towards the sky. The flowers of Chionodoxa luciliae are pale blue with a white centre, and theflowers open fully even in gloomy weather.
