I dig up:  Galanthus elwesii var. elwesii 'Kite'. The bulbs seem to me OK. I don't think they need to be destroyed. I put everything in a pot.

Herman,
It looks that you have used fresh bark as a mulch. If so, this might be the cause of the leaf tip damage.

Wim, I indeed used fresh bark as a mulch in autumn. This Galanthus was the only one with damaged leaves and no flower.

I agree that the bulbs look fine.  However if the plants have a viral infection I would not necessarily expect that the bulbs would show any sign of this.

Thanks Alan and Wim. I'll leave them in a pot and see what it gives next year

Snowdrops are remarkably frost tolerant. ... It's one of the things I like about them!

Attached a clump of PHD 33463 after a frost (11th Feb) and again four days later.

I had severe frost damage on snowdrops last March and it proved the flower stems to be the weakest to frostbite. Quite some cultivars got damaged as two examples below.

699866-0
'Moortown Mighty'

699868-1
'Veronica Cross'

Another thing I noticed was yellowed/damaged leaf tips and yellow marks instead of green on some cultivars. Snowdrops are remarkably tough but can be damaged by frost down to -10 'C.

699870-2
'Trumps' with some yellowish marks
699872-3
'Poculiperfect' with damaged leaf tips

Unknown Galanthus in a friends garden.  Any idea as to the species, thanks.

Unknown species; bought several years ago on a market as "poculiforme" without any naming. Needed several years to settle. Nice anyway

I think the species is Galanthus plicatus but the leaves are a bit too far away to be sure.

It looks like the species is Galanthus nivalis.  Poculiform snowdrops are so much less common in other species that nivalis would be a good bet even if I could not see the picture.

It is always exciting to see the first flowers from seed you've raised.

Very nice markings.  Do those narrow leaves in the foreground belong to that flower?
