Some nice snowdrop seedlings in flower now from a cross between G. reginae-olgae x peshmenii. I do not know if there is any peshmenii in there, but the seedlings are sturdy with large flowers, outers nicely ribbed.

G. reginae-olgae x peshmenii 4101-2 is now fully out and I am astonished by the wonderful scent, quite unlike either of the possible parents - somewhere between sweet violets and Lily of the Valley. Even on a cold dull day it is strong, but when the sun comes out it is very powerful.

How exciting to learn that your G. reginae-olgae x peshmenii 4101-2  has such a charming fragrance. A real bonus!

Scented plants are my favourites, too!  :)

This is one of my hybrids between G. elwesii ans peshmenii. As G. peshmenii didnīt survive in my garden, I hoped for G. elwesii to add more hardiness.



A lost label pot. Looks like a G. elwesii var. elwesii gone wrong in time?
