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).

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.

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.

This is a European species with magenta flowers in June. It has been grown in gardens in Britain for centuries but populations are also found on roadside and field margins in many parts of the country. This is not the weaker plant that has gone under the name Gladiolus byzantinus (which is now thought to be Gladiolus italicus). Best in drier sunny places.

This grows in the woods and mountains of Sothern Europe from the Alps to Spain where we found it on limestone rocks near Cazorla Star shaped blue flowers forming 6” spikes. Formerly Scilla italica but the presence of two bracts rather than one seems to have helped shift it into being more closely related to our Bluebell but it otherwise appears and behaves much more like a squill.

Despite the ancestor coming from the mountains of the Middle East, H. orientalis cultivars are well adapted to life in our British gardens, enjoying a moist soil and a good cold dormancy. With 12”spikes of soft blue bell like flowers in March attracting the first emerging bees with their fragrance, this Hyacinth persists year after year in our garden.

Although oddly called the English Iris, this actually originated in the Pyrenees. It flowers in late June with wide falls in shades of bluey-purple and white. These bulbous irises establish well in meadow condition.
