SNOWDROP

Family AMARYLLIDACEAE
Galanthus species
Perennial


A lovely bulbous native of Europe and Asia Minor.
The leaves are narrow and strap-shaped, and the stems, free from foliage, carry drooping flowers composed of three outer white spoon-shaped segments and three smaller inner ones that form a short corona, white and edged with green.

Our native Galanthus nivalis is familiar to all, and is one of the most cherished of our native plants, the flowers being borne singly from January to March on stems up to nine inches; there are many forms, including lutescens, with a yellow edging to the corona instead of green, and also a double-flowered form; the length of the outer segments is usually a little less than an inch.
Galanthus elwesii and Galanthus byzantinus have larger flowers and reach a height of one foot.

The bulbs should be planted in late summer or early autumn in well-drained soil, and should be given a ground planting of one of the prostrate growing Thymes to prevent the purity of the flowers from becoming marred by mud splashes.

Propagate by offsets when lifting the bulbs.

The flowering season is from January to March.

Snowdrop
Hardy Bulb.
Four to six inches.
Flowers white, with green markings, February and March.

The Snowdrop is the earliest of all the commonly grown bulbs; it is absolutely hardy, and defies the weather, yet it is capricious as to soil, and in may places only grows in a half-hearted way, though in others it overflows from the garden and increases by thousands in a wild state in fields and woods.
In any other place where it will thrive, it should be planted abundantly; once established in shrubberies or plantations, hedge sides or grassy slopes, it will multiply year after year untouched.
The bulbs should be planted two inches deep and about one inch apart, not later than October. They will grow in shade and under trees, but it is of little use planting them where the soil is hard, dust dry, or full of tree roots.

The Snowdrop is happiest where dead leaves, decaying twigs, green moss and such woodland litter abounds.
After flowering, the foliage must be left to wither in its own time, and not be trimmed off.
The single and double kinds are both beautiful; the single are perhaps the more graceful.
The bulbs are apt to “sport”, changing from single to double, and vice versa.
