This hybrid snowdrop brings charm to the Woodland Garden.
Snowdrops never fail to bring cheer to the winter garden with their graceful flowers. The common name snowdrop is highly appropriate, as is the generic name Galanthus which comes from the Greek for gala meaning milk, and anthos meaning flower. Comprising 19 species the genus occurs in woodlands and rocky locations throughout western Asia and Europe. The common snowdrop, G. nivalis, is the most familiar, being naturalised in the British Isles and widely grown in our gardens. This plant is a hybrid of the double G. nivalis ‘Flore-Pleno’ and the pleated snowdrop G. plicatus, whose foliage has recurved margins.
