Snowdrops. Like muscari, snowdrops (Galanthus spp.) multiply by seed as well as bulblets and form larger clumps year after year. Treat them as perennials, leaving the bulbs in the ground, and skip deadheading to encourage seed formation.
Choose the right nozzle. Pressure washer nozzles are measured in degrees — those that shoot water in a very narrow area have the strongest spray (zero is the strongest) and should be used very cautiously. For most homes a nozzle with a 40-degree spray should suffice, so start there and work your way down to a 25-degree nozzle if necessary.
Snowdrop(Galanthus nivalis)Common snowdrop is one of the first bulbs to appear in the woodland garden each year — catch this plant before it goes dormant and disappears. This perennial bulb is especially cold-tolerant, so you might see nodding flower heads poking through snow and ice. Bloom season: Early springCold tolerance: Hardy to minus 40 degrees Fahrenheit, or minus 40 degrees Celsius (zones 3 to 8)Origin: EuropeWater requirement: ModerateLight requirement: Full sun to partial shadeWhen to plant: FallSee how to grow snowdrop
