A pretty small flowered species with broad glassy green leaves. It took a long time to establish
in the woodland walk, but there are now two or three small clumps,and they are slowly expanding.

The flowers are rather variable. I keep the ones I like in pots while I make up my mind about them.

The clumps in the garden are slowly starting to make a significant impact in the snowdrop season and I am starting to wish I had more of them.

It makes such magnificent clumps of leaves early in the year that the flowers seem insufficient, though
they are quite wonderful in detail. They just fall a little short of the promise of the leaves.
This is now the most commonly traded snowdrop, bulbs are being harvested in large numbers in Georgia
and sold through Dutch wholesalers.
