Because they are so diminutive, snowdrops are at their best when massed in a large bed. Since they bloom so early, interplant them with later-blooming bulbs such as daffodils and tulips or perennial flowers. They also stand out nicely when planted right in a lawn. (Be sure to mow around the foliage until it dies down naturally, though; if cut down too soon, the bulbs won't be able to store enough energy). Try them in informal groups in front of shrubs, under trees or sprinkled throughout a groundcover like periwinkle or pachysandra. Snowdrops are also a good choice for rock gardens and for naturalizing in woodland areas.
Snowdrops grow in tubs or standard clay pots.
