Named after the heroine in Walter Scott's 'Maiden of the Mist' you will have to read what it says in 'Snowdrops' with regard to it's history as space does not allow repetition here, but it is well connected to the oldest collectors. A small neat plant with thickly textured outer segments, the ovary slightly paler than the marking on the inner segment. 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" (10-15cm) 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" (10cm) away ideally. They will clump up in time.
