At least in part, the elwesii in Turkey (Türkiye) are "farmed" for export so the wild stocks are not obliterated.  Botanist and galanthophile Andy Byfield was instrumental in setting-up such a scheme some years ago. 
Almost in Scotland.

Stefan, I trust Your Galanthus trojanus will remain as impressing as it was twice. Congratulations!  :)

I do not remember a season as bad as this regarding the weather, rain and storm almost all the time. Most of the snowdrops are finished now, alas!

Stefan, the first one has a beautiful mark! And the one in front of the second picture shows just the dainty marks I like! Is the split mark stable? The last G.e. have a very nice balloon-form, resembling ´Diggory´, very attractive!

Yes it is stable, I like it a lot too because the green mark is like out of focus. :o

Stefan, really nice to see snowdrops flowering in sun. You are having a good weather for them now. :)
Observing nameless ones is fun, and you have some very nice ones there. I especially liked the balloon shaped flower.
'Wifi Schapeau' is nice and how wonderful it must be with so many snowdrops flowering now.

Yes, Stefan, You´re really lucky not only to have beautiful and interesting snowdrops, but matching weather, too. ´Broad Leaf Convolute´ is a very handsome one, do You know where it comes from?

In my garden, the very last snowdrops are in flower now. There were early G. woronowii, and there are late ones, too.



Marred by bad weather, a poculiform G. nivalis.



A seedling I like.

Thanks Leena, indeed, this winter, the weather is unusually warm and sunny for me. It is good for our mood and for the flowering plants.

Looking forward to your sunny photos soon!  :)

Thanks Mariette, I've noticed that when it's raining at your place it's sunny at my place and vice versa. :) It's so dry with me that I have to water small parts of the garden almost every other day. This is very worrying for me, what will I do in the summer if this dry weather continues….

A few years ago I bought it from BÄUERLEINS, I was also interested to know about its history and I wrote to Mr. Bäuerlein Horst, this is what he replied:
Hallo Herr Bankov,
zu der Geschichte von diesem Glöckchen kann ich folgendes sagen:
Diese Pflanze wurde vor ca 20 Jahren von Gisela Schmiemann aus England mitgebracht und unter diesem Namen weiter verbreitet.
Frau Schmiemann hat es von Mrs Elisabeth Parker-Jervis erhalten, der weitere Ursprung ist leider nicht mehr nachvollziehbar.
Mit besten Grüßen
Bäuerlein Horst
