Although it blooms several weeks after spring snowflake (Leucojum vernum), summer snowflake (Leucojum Aestivum) blooms in mid-spring (late April), not in summer. It usually goes dormant by summer. Dark grassy green leaves to 12” long and 1” wide form an upright, vase-shaped clump of foliage. Typically 2-5 (less frequently to 8) white, nodding, bell-shaped flowers appear at the top of naked hollow flower scapes (to 12-15” tall) in spring. Each flower has three similar looking sepals and petals (tepals) that are spotted at the tip with green.
