Galanthus 'Angustifolius'



15th February 2005


Galanthus angustifolius is a rare species from the northern Caucasus allied to Galanthus alpinus. It has narrow glaucous leaves and large flowers. The name has also been applied to a narrow leaved form of Galanthus nivalis.
I bought my bulb from Broadleigh Gardens in 1987, and it has slowly clumped up. It is the G. nivalis form not the species.
