Acis autumnalis (aka Leucojum autumnale)

Acis autumnalis
Autumn snowflake. Nothing like the more familiar spring and summer snowflakes with which it used to be classified, except that they have pale nodding flowers. No more than four inches high with very fine glossy almost evergreen foliage. Flowers mostly in August and September.
Acis autumnalis
A very pretty and hardy little bulb – easy in a well-drained sunny spot without too much competition.
