Winter flowers, plus your winter garden checklist.
Not to be confused with snowflakes (Leucojum), snowdrops (Galanthus) flower from early winter to late spring. Leucojum, on the other hand, flower with the daffodils in late September. There are other ways to tell these two apart. Snowdrops have three long petals and three short ones; a snowflake's petals are all the same length. Snowdrops also require a cold climate, so they don't do as well in the north; snowdrops, however, are superb cut flowers. Pick them when in bud and they'll last about 10 days in a vase.
