Basic information
  • EPPO Code: 1CIXG
  • Preferred name: Chionodoxa
  • Authority: Boissier


Many authors have considered that Chionodoxa should be included into the genus Scilla (as a section) because morphological differences (e.g. flattened bases of stamens, stamens closely clustered in the middle of the flowers) are not sufficient to create a separate genus.
