Galanthus 'Greenfinch'

19th February 2011

Another one that is having as little holiday with me while its garden is remodelled. Green tips are the flavour of the year this season, and this one is striking and quite distinctive. The outer segments are slightly pinched at the ends. I think of a Greenfinch's bill (but I can't think why because it looks nothing like it).

Found by Richard Hobbs in the former garden of Heyrick Greatorex (raiser of a famous group of double snowdrop hybrids).
