Galanthus 'Benjamin Britten'
14th February 2017
A number of new comercial selections have been made in The Netherlands and named after composers.
'Benjamin Britten' was released in 2013. Presumably
they are clones that responded will to field production and were distinctive enough to be worth listing.
Originally selected by Mr Leo Schoorl from Lisse in the 1980's from a batch of G. elwesii originating
in Izmir in Turkey.
I have a few of them, but 'H. Purcell' died and now its ... No, you're right, I'm not going to do that joke.
