One of the features I always like in snowdrop flowers is the lovely crinkly texture of the outers on, for instance, Diggory. A new variety in flower here just now, G. plicatus Kera, has deeply corrugated flowers in a wonderful balloon shape. It is shorter than Diggory. It is a seedling sent to me from Estonia, and was bred by Suur Tilk.

edit :
I have an update from Taavi Tuulik, who gave me 'Kera'. I had misunderstood his description of its origin, which I am now happy to correct:
KERA was bred by Taavi Tuulik from the cultivar 'Suur Tilk', which itself was bred by Sulev Savisaar.

I must admit that I love that effect too, will you have it available soon?

Here is one that will be available in the very near future - probably the end of next week when the catalogue returns from the printers.  It demonstrates how galanthophiles like to share their good finds.  This is Galanthus 'Green Whisp' available for the first time generally from North Green.
Quote
the barely opening flower on it’s particularly long pedicel resembles an old fashioned tear-glass bottle streaked all over with green, both inside and out.
Discovered by the generous Belgian galanthophile Johan Mens and given to the late, and greatly missed, Veronica Cross.  In turn this was passed to John Morley who has bulked it up so that it is now generally available to us all.  I queried the name and was told that a whisp is a collective noun for a flock of snipe.

Excellent Brian, hope there is one with my name onit. Frustrating to see some that never appear for us mere mortals!

Just for you Mariette, the inner marking of 'Goldsmith'...
Thank You so much, Brian! As Anne pointed out, it´s always helpful to learn from other collectors which new yellows are really worthwhile acquiring.

Yes they are John, glad you like them. Also there will be this from Wol and Sue at Glen Chantry, to join the 'Chantry Cracker'!  A wonderful new Galanthus plicatus

Such a  pity  that Wol and  Sue  were  not  able to  attend  a  number  of their planned Snowdrop Season events - I  know  they  were  sorely  missed  at the  AGS  Snowdrop Day at  Newport on Saturday.

Let's  hope Wol is  much better, very  soon!

Another of the new introductions to be available later this week in the North Green Catalogue.  I know one person was very enthusiastic about this one on Monday when he saw it in the garden - and I value his opinion!  I will have to look and see what it is doing in our garden - it is called 'Odd Scharlock'

From Richard Bashford a delightful snowdrop named 'Moonshine' where the scape and pedicel are decidedly paler than the receptacle.  Most unusual and not seen on other threads.
