This little delicate flower captures the
imagination. In large parts of Europe this is a native wild flower, also known
as snake's head. It has a particular, snake-like way of growing during the cold
early spring: the delicate stem is bent town, the flower bud lies on the ground, but it raises up as it flowers.
An extraordinary plant with charming, purple, checkered, bell-shaped, flowers gracefully hanging from a slim stalk, surrounded by narrow leaves. The snake's head thrives on moist soil and in partial shade. In natural circumstances, the seeds spread by floating on water, and it will take eight years before they produce flowers. With the bulbs from our webshop, however, you can enjoy these lovely flowers in the next spring already.
