This form of G.elwesii was found and named by Joe Sharman in 1990 in Cambridgeshire. The solid looking flowers exhibit a claw like tip to the base of the broad outer segments, and when they open the inner segment markings seem to mimic a green downturned mouth below green eyes. A memorable name and one that appeals to beginners in the snowdrop journey. Supplied 'in the green'.

Planting Instructions

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" (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.
