Galanthus 'G. F. Handel'

9th February 2013

A vigorous "commercial" snowdrop (raised in a field scale) from Mr Leo Schoorl in the Netherlands and introduced in 1997. A lovely and moderately vigorous snowdrop , there is a slight fly in the ointment - it doesn't really resemble pictures of the original. However, an online search will rapidly reveal a host of identities that carry the same name. Possibly the field production of cultivars carries a certain risk!
When introduced it was said to be early flowering but mine isn't.
