Galanthus Straffan

Possibly the oldest authenticated galanthus hybrid which was found in 1858 and sold by the thousand later by the Giant Snowdrop Co. in the 1960s (imported from Ireland). A relatively easy and vigorous late flowering form of Galanthus plicatus  with a distinct green mark on the inner petals described like a Chinese bridge, one which shouldn’t be missing from any collection.  Supplied in the "green"

Planting Instructions

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.
