Galanthus plicatus x (in the green)


A species native to the Crimea. The story goes that soldiers in the 1850’s 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 Galanthus 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. AGM
