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

Today the weather is excellent for walks in the fresh air; mass flowering of primroses will soon begin in the gardens of the Russian Museum; we remind you that from April 1, the Summer and Mikhailovsky Gardens will be closed for scheduled drying. We recommend admiring this beauty right now.
