Hi Michael,

Sorry I can't help you.  That's just the label on that snowdrop from Saturday.  Its not a competitive show, just an exhibition, so people don't put their names on them.  I'm no snowdrop specialist...

Anthony, 'The Groom' was such a tiny thing - about half the size of normal snowdrops, and with such a sad face I simply had to take its picture....

Did anyone else notice the pot alongside 'The Groom', it just had the leaves of some snowdrops? Would this have been 'The Bride'?
