Here, Leucojum vernum's performance is directly related to the amount of
water it gets in the garden in spring.  I've moved it a couple of times to
moister areas but I'm sure it never gets as much as it really would like.

Jay, does Leucojum vernum do well for you? Although I've had plants of this
species in my garden for decades, they have never seemed really prosperous.
They bloom and sometimes set seed, but there is always a sort of halting
quality about their performance.  

Is anyone else out there having real success with this species?
