Three-Leaved Snowflake. Acis trichophylla
Formerly Leucojum trichophyllum
This lovely, delicate, small early spring flowering bulb is always a joy to see. It's not as common as its autumn relative, Acis autumnalis (which has a much more varied habitat), but it can often be found growing in quite large colonies.
Acis trichophylla like a sandy soil, particularly in open coastal pine woodlands. They flower from February through to April, but sometimes can be found in bloom as early as the beginning of January.
