Snowdrops

Snowdrop

Galanthus nivalis

Galanthus means with milk-white flowers.

The first sign of spring!

This narrow-leaved snowdrop, with its delicate white hanging flowers grows to approximately 4 inches tall.

Snowdrops are reliable hardy and perennial. Snowdrops are a must in your garden!

Double Snowdrops


Galanthus nivalis flore-pleno

 

Flore Pleno' is a robust, vigorous variety with double, white flowers.

 

 

 

Snowflakes

Snowflake

Leucojum vernum

This snowflake often blooms as early as the snowdrops but is much more rare than the summer snowflake .

Each flower stem usually carries a single lightly scented flower, but occasionally two will appear.

The elongated leaves are bright green. Broad, shiny green leaves and bell-shaped white flowers with green or yellow tips – rather like a ‘Tiffany’ lampshade

Snowdrops, snowflakes and aconites

Aconites

Eranthis hyemalis

Upturned , golden yellow cup-shaped flower surrounded by rag-like ruffs.

Winter aconites have been grown since the sixteenth century in English Gardens and extend the flowering season of perennials by adding splashes of colour from January to March .

Contrasting colours of white and fluorescent yellow are a common occurrence in nature and regularly appear side by side.

Perhaps this is why winter aconites so visually effective when mixed with snowdrops.
