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.

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.

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.
