No, not a weed, a wonderful surprise. Transplant them, and let them multiply, they won't be invasive, just delightful. I planted galanthus nivalis and thought I was creating a big swath with 50 little bulbs, but now see I needed 500 for the effect I wanted. Maybe 1,000.
I'm told they multiply, but I've been waiting for years.
I think Laurrie's right, they're not a weed! One thing that is neat about these is that you can have them interspersed in your lawn - they only bloom (here at least) at the very beginning of the season (theoretically prior to the first mow), and you don't hurt them by mowing the lawn with them in it. You can also transplant them. I've had luck with them multiplying in some areas, not so much in other areas - probably due to soil pH?
Awesome news--thank you! I transplanted about six, patted myself on the back, then ran them over trying to harvest bamboo for pea trellises. *Sigh.*
I guess I'll need to order a thousand of these come fall, though the idea of planting that many tiny bulbs seems daunting. I'd love to intentionally sow these in the lawn in our front yard.
Okay, now I NEED these in the lawn out front. That's so cool!
They definitely look like Snowdrops (Galanthus) to me too. Not at all weedy, but do naturalize nicely. Be happy...the British LOSE THEIR MINDS over them...for realz. They will spend big $$$ on them!
