Galanthus 'Merlin'

Archive entry 17.01.16

11th February 2006

Raised by James Allen of Shepton Mallet, probably in the 1880's. Striking for the solid green inner segments. It has hung on for a long time now, though I have never found it to be particularly vigorous. After 20 years I still only have a small clump of bulbs.

I have two forms under the name. This is my original, with long outer segments and a rather tired appearance.
