Snowdrops among the snow flakes


Despite the cold chill of winter, the first flowers of the year are blooming at Schoepfle Garden, even if it is beneath the snow.  Common snowdrops, Galanthus nivalis, are minor bulbs and members of the Amaryllis family, native to Europe but have been naturalized around the globe for their ability to bloom in mid-winter as a precursor to spring flowers.  Check them out if the snow allows at Schoepfle Garden on Sunday January 27th at 2 pm for a winter garden tour or learn about designing your own winter landscape Saturday January 26th at 11am as we explore the Winter Garden.
