An early flowering species from northern Turkey where it grows in shade amongst hazel. Often at its best at the end of January. It is a dainty snowdrop with relatively wide matt green leaves showing a faint central stripe and quite 'dumpy' flowers topped by a pale ovary. Supplied "in the green" from dug plants.
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.
