An early flowering double snowdrop from the garden of Lady Beatrix Stanley at Sibbertoft Manor near
Market Harborough. The name was formally applied by Richard Nutt in 1981, but he had provided a full description with the
name in the RHS Daffodil and Tulip Year Book, 1971, No.36 pp 165-174. He says there that the name had been applied
by E.A.Bowles (i.e. before 1956).
An immensely clean and tidy double flower. Every segment is perfect, not a single 'bad hair day' among the flowers. During the year it was planted out
and is appreciating the root run.
A very distinctive flower in the garden. The green mark on the inner segments is reduced to two small 'pips'
and the doubling of the inner segments doesn't show except in the fuller shape of the flower.
As the flowers age they open more widely but are always crisply coloured and tidy. Early in flower and quite delightful.
