Glory of the snow






Glory of the snow in Margareteberg 
(22.4. and 28.4.2014).

From Wikipedia:
Chionodoxa, known as glory-of-the-snow, is a small genus of bulbous 
perennial flowering plants in the family Asparagaceae, subfamily 
Scilloideae, often included in Scilla. The genus is endemic to the 
eastern Mediterranean, specifically Crete, Cyprus and Turkey. 
The blue, white or pink flowers appear early in the year making 
them valuable garden ornamentals. The common name of the 
genus is based on the habit of flowering in high alpine zones 
when the snow melts in spring.
