A large and vigorous form of Galanthus plicatus found in a garden at Warham by Rev. C. Digby. Said to have been brought back from the Crimea by returning soldiers after the Crimean War in about 1855.
One of the last snowdrops to flower here, and one of the tallest.
This is the patch just after I have split them, so they are looking a bit ragged, but it will be worth it in the long run.
They have started to establish good clumps, and it is time to dig them up and split them again.
The clumps are now so congested that the bulbs have been pushed up to the soil surface, and in the winter
I find odd bulbs rolling about. Time to split them up and get them back under the ground.
