A species native to the Crimea. The story goes that soldiers in the 1850s war brought it back to Britain where it crossed with our Snowdrop. The tall vigorous early flowering crosses established in many large estates. Flowering earlier than G.nivalis, they make a larger plant with heart shaped green markings on the inner petals, and wider foliage turned back, (or plicate) at the edges.

This long admired robust Snowdrop was first raised from seed in the 1890’s, again as a G. nivalis and G. plicatus cross. It is later flowering and stands out clearly with its fine long pedicel or flower stem with good sized elegant flowers.

One of the more striking forms of G.nivalis, named after a 19th century Scottish Galanthophile. Appearing later in the Snowdrop season the large flowers produce an unusually strong honey fragrance. It has the great virtue of being a vigorous grower.

SOLD OUT FOR AUTUMN 2016
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.

This form of Galanthus elwesii is distinguished by only a single green marking on the inner tepals. This form has been grown in gardens here for many years and has proved itself as reliable and vigorous, flowering even earlier than the rest of the G.elwesii, sometimes in December (previously called G. caucasicus hort).

Groups of this Snowdrop are an attractive sight, with wide shiny fresh green foliage making a pleasing contrast with the narrow bluish green leaves of our Snowdrop G.nivalis. The foliage then continues to provide good ground cover after the flowers finish in March. Coming from areas of high rainfall on the East Black Sea coast, it is ideal for growing in our UK gardens.

Another form of Winter Aconite. Although now considered a subspecies of E.hyemalis, this native of the mountains of Cilicia in Anatolia has striking differences. Its larger golden flowers appear later over a thinner leafed ruff. It naturalises well under trees and shrubs. As with E.hyemalis, tubers are freshly lifted on demand August to October or can also be sent in the green in March.
