Galanthus elwesii

SKU: 2.021

This snowdrop is one of the earliest to appear. With wide greyish leaves, the flowers are distinguished by mostly having two green spots on the inner petals. These bulbs are from the Indigenous Propagation Project just started by the WWF in the Taurus Mountains of Turkey, to stop wild collection of bulbs, and which John twice visited at its inception. Unlike the other Snowdrops listed here they don't mind drying out after lifting, reflecting dry summers experienced in their native habitat.
