Asparagaceae

Chionodoxa cretica

Glory of the Snow

Choice snow-melt treasure from the high limestone mountains of Crete. From two, narrow leaves a dainty spike of up to 4 soft blue blooms, each with a white eye, is borne in late winter. These flowers open out to flat-stars and this serves to separate them from the other Cretan species, C. albescens. A very rare item.
