Galanthus plicatus ‘Three Ships’ came sailing in on Boxing Day instead of Christmas Day.This ‘neat’ snowdrop with its textured white tepals appear pleated. From above, they resemble scallop shells, and their orderly ribbing echoes the formality of a ruff collar.A hardy, early blooming bulb.
Galanthus ‘Bright Eyes’
UPDATE: Blooming today in my Pennsylvania garden is Galanthus ‘Bright Eyes’, with four outer and four inner segments (4×4). This Snowdrop doesn’t always exhibit these characteristics, but this year, a 3 out of 5, and a 2 out of 3 chance showing, ‘ain’t bad’
One of the boldest snowdrops of the ‘Trym’ seedlings is Galanthus ‘Trymming’. It is an attention grabber in the garden as the markings are visible from both top and side views, and maintains its pagoda shape as the flowers mature.
Galanthus ‘Phantom’ imparts a cumulus billowing gracefulness to the woodland garden. It produces two scapes per bulb, the first being a poculiform of six long segments, the second a normal flower. The leaf litter provides a natural mulch for the health of the plant and prevents the soil from splashing onto the flowers.
Galanthus ‘George Elwes’
Galanthus ‘George Elwes’ in the sun, in the rain, and with a fun aberration.A primary hybrid of G. plicatus x elwesii with a mostly solid inner segments from Colesbourne Park, 1979.
