The name Chionodoxa derives from the Greek words ‘chion’ (‘snow’) and ‘doxa’ (‘glory’ or ‘repute’), that’s why this plant commonly known as Glory-of-the-Snow or Snow Glories. It is so-named because in some climates it blooms early enough that its bright blue six-point star-flowers appear right out of the snow. Flowers are mostly blue, but lilac, violet, white and pink forms are known too. Usually, flowers have a bright white center with creamy-yellow stamens. The papar Chionodoxa wonders, with a profusion of star-like flowers, are excellent for your origami garden, or for arranging in spring-mood Oribana-compositions.
