Galanthus Elwesii

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



The greater snowdrop is a strong and robust variety which naturalises easily and can be relied on for years to come in the garden.

Stems of single white flowers, up to 15cm tall, bloom in January and February and are a welcome sign of spring when little else is blooming outdoors.

Snow-white, pointed petals hang downwards, beneath which emerald-green markings of the inner segments can just be seen.

If spring arrives early with a spell of warm, sunny days, the flowers may be fleeting and will last longer during a period of extended cold weather.

A delicate, yet extremely hardy cultivar which has been granted an Award of Garden Merit by the RHS.
