Galanthus Elwesii Polar Bear

(inc. 20.0% VAT)



Several qualities make Elwesii Polar Bear an unusual snowdrop for the garden.

The flowers bloom later than most Galanthus, during February to March, which make this cultivar a great option for extending magical snowdrop season and stand taller than most varieties too, at 20-30cm.

Large, pure white blooms face outwards from the stems, rather than straight down, allowing the pretty green markings on the inner segments to be more visible.

The bulbs are also large and should be planted in autumn into moist, fertile soil. Snowdrops grow best in shade or semi-shaded areas – ideal for woodland gardens and for illuminating a dark corner of the garden.
