In 1880 Revd. H. Harpur-Crewe received a snowdrop raised by David Melville, head gardener at Dunrobin Castle, that had six large white segments and no 'inners'. He named it 'Poculiformis' or "little cup". The original clone has probably died out, but it is a mutation that turns up from time to time. Some of them are good, some very good, some get named. This is a fairly good and vigorous specimen of the "also-poculiforms".
