Mrs Mathias (of the Giant Snowdrop Co.) exhibited these first in 1951. One of the very best galanthus with great stature and presence and very white and thick glistening petals. Large and rounded flowers opening wide to release a honey scent. Long stemmed and quite long flowering, though more or less sterile so no seed is produced. Clump forming to provide that desirable and satisfying mass. Supplied in the "green"
All snowdrops prefer cool, moist conditions in the spring and a surprisingly dry summer dormancy in the shade. Did 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.
