One of the earliest known hybrid forms of galanthus being traded back in 1875. This should be one of building blocks of any snowdrop collection. Tall stemmed with long pointed outer petals and because it is so vigorous, clumps up to provide that mass of white we so welcome. Supplied in the "green"
All snowdrops prefer cool, moist conditions in the spring and a surprisingly dry summer dormancy in the shade. Dig a deep but narrow planting hole probably 4-6" deep (an asparagus trowel is a great implement for the job) loosening the soil at depth and introduce your snowdrop into this at a depth slightly greater than it was previously planted (where the stem turns green!) Firm in and water the soil remembering to label the spot. If planting more than one of the same variety, plant the next about 4" away ideally. They will clump up in time.
