I believe the name translates as "white nose"
It means indeed "white nose", but also is a play with words, as "Naseweis" in German means "Mr. Know-it-All"...  :)

We have been a bit busy in the last few days (well it is snowdrops season!), but I would like to share this with you. I was sent a copy of the flier from Primrose Hill Gardens in Ireland which was of great interest.  It lists snowdrops which have arisen there and been named by Robin Hall including one which is very well deserved - even though it is the last on the list.  It looks to have nice long outers and claws which will show the mark whilst it is still in bud.  Well deserved recognition for one of Ireland's leading galanthophiles, Paddy Tobin. Welcome to the snowdrop 'immortals'.

Stefan, Your G. trojanus is very beautiful, I like this species very much but wonder, if it would stand the conditions in my garden. ´Naseweis´ is a very nice and unusual snowdrop, as is the name.

Brian, sad and good news from You! The unique catalogues of North Green Snowdrops will be missed, as well as the attractive and interesting varieties they offered.

Paddy Tobin is a deserved snowdrop enthusiast, and well worth giving his name to this lovely snowdrop! As long outers and claws are what I do favour in snowdrops, I may especially say so.  ;) Thank You for Your informations!

By the way, an Irish snowdrop doing well in my garden, ´Kildare´.




´Belvedere Gold´


 
The flowers of ´Wessex Titan´on the right are not especially large compared with ´Seagull´on the left.



Yet with´Wessex Titan´ in the background, ´Veronica Cross´looks diminutive.

    What nice news - Paddy is a galanthophile of long-standing.

Stefan, Your G. trojanus is very beautiful, I like this species very much but wonder, if it would stand the conditions in my garden. ´Naseweis´ is a very nice and unusual snowdrop, as is the name.

Mariette, mine G. trojanus growing under a lilac bush in brown forest soil, this soil has more sand than the clay soil you say you have in your garden. Snowdrop is not difficult to grow, in the summer I keep the soil moist, that's all.

To me, the bigger question is why does this snowdrop make four or five petals,
another year and I'm curious if his young bulbs will show this characteristic. But apparently no one in the forum has had such a problem..., I prefer it to bloom normally with three petals of the flower. I prefer not to exhibit these quirks.

And for the German varieties of snowdrops, I already have some wonderful varieties that I will show you these days :)

The two seedlings are very cute. 8)

Thank You, Stefan!

It would be great if Your Galanthus trojanus would flower with 4 or 5 tepals every year! As it´s doing so for the second time, there is hope that this will be a constant feature. In the past, I´ve selected some snowdrops with 4 tepals, either G. nivalis, but ´Merlin´and ´S. Arnott´, also. Usually, they showed this feature only once.  As Leena wrote, the additional tepal adds much to the attractiveness of Your G. trojanus!

I´m looking forward to see Your German varieties  of snowdrops here!   :)

I think they were just restricted from sunlight, they will soon turn green. They look like G. 'Flore Pleno' to me.

The snowdrops are in the open next to a river. The seed capsule is yellow.
