 Not sure this sort of thing is helpful to my cunning plan to get sponsorship from the Tourist Board  :-\  On the other hand, if there are lots of  folks similar to Anne.......      ::)    there may yet be hope  :-X

A very dull grey day here meteorologically BUT brilliant yellow sunshine supplied by Anne Wright and Dryad Nursery.

First up:The final, much requested TALL versions of the Dryad Gold series,

Dryad Gold Sceptre
656117-0

Dryad Gold Standard
656119-1
Both absolute stunners, tall erect and living up to Anne's motto of 'Clumps in Waiting' and completing an iconic series of yellows!

Next Dryad Gold Medal
656121-2

Then Dryad Gold Charm
656123-3

and finally one of the unnamed clones that I love DG M, that did not pass Anne's rigorous naming standards.
656125-4

After much chivvying, Iíve decided, at last, to offer our final two named cultivars in the Dryad Gold series, following a number of inquiries about the larger clones. These two varieties, Dryad Gold Standard and Dryad Gold Sceptre, bring the total Dryad Gold family to 10 named varieties, which is half the number of clones we grow.
Also looking good just now, potfuls of Dryad Gold Bullion and Nugget. Never a show when you need one... ::)

Anne,

You stated somewhere that you were releasing some snowdrops that took you nine years to develop.

Have you kept track of how many seeds you sowed to finally arrive at named ones?
