Leucojum aestivum
Please can anyone tell me, are Leucojum aestivum (summer snowflake) self seeding or do they simply multiply from their bulbs?

Thank you

On plant Leucojum aestivum




MULTIPLY BY BULBS, BUT THE SEEDS MAY GERMINATE, BUT THEY WONT REACH FLOWERING size for 3+ years and are more likely to be weeded out thinking they were a grass!

Oops with the capitals!

I have grown almost every Leucojum (most now renamed Acis) from seed with no trouble at all. Why not collect the seeds and sow in deep pots to increase your numbers. Yes they take a few years to flower, but if you sow some every year, once they do begin you have some more for the subsequent years too.
