What Should I Do After Flowering?

Chionodoxa require next to no care. They die down a few weeks after blooming and disappear until next Spring - no untidy foliage to deal with. They readily propagate by self-seeding (will flower in 2-3 years) and bulblets. If you want to move or thin overcrowded clumps, do so just after the leaves wither.
