Spring white flower – Leucojum vernum L. has bloomed in the Mikhailovsky Garden. This bulbous plant grows in the mountain forests of Central Europe. It has been grown in culture since 1420. The name comes from the Greek words “leucos” – milk and “ion” – violet, which indicates the color of the flowers.

True, the white flower plant looks a little like a violet.
And although today it is cloudy and rainy, the flowering of plants continues or begins in the gardens of the Russian Museum. There are 10 days left until the opening of the gardens.
