    Once spring arrives, you may want nothing more than to not hear about snow for another two seasons, but an exception can be made for this lavender-blue bloom, aptly named for its penchant to “poke its little bright blue six-petaled flowers right out of the snow,” as Martha Stewart puts it. Despite the wintry name and early-spring emergence, the color of a large, sweeping bed of Glory of the Snow (Chionodoxa luciliae) is actually said to resemble the summer sky fallen to the earth. The 100 Colorblends bulbs, which are cultivated in the Netherlands, should be planted in full sun or partial shade and well-drained soil that is not too dry. They will produce 3-5 inch tall flowers which are capable of spreading by seed, so the bed of blue on the ground can grow to be as big as the sky itself.
