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?
