Villu, how nice to see you already have snowdrops coming up. :)
I remember how I liked your 'Pat Mason' last year, it seems a very sturdy snowdrop.

Here everything is still under snow, but in my root cellar G.gracilis sown last May is starting to germinate. :)

Snowdrop season is coming to an end here, unfortunately.


A beautiful snowflake...


G. nivalis


G. nivalis


G. nivalis, short and fluffy:)

Isn't it wrong, bought with that name, those green tips are suspicious!?

Stefan, the first one is really beautiful, and also you have very nice different nivalis. Mine are mostly very similar to each other.

Stefan, G. x allenii is easily recognized by the supervolute vernation combined with matt-green, rather broad leaves - something, which is rather unique among snowdrops. Its always one of the latest to emerge in my garden, too.

Today I had time to photograph my Galanthus x allenii again, I even lay down on the lawn to smell it :) it has a nice scent. Mariette, do you think my snowdrop leaves look like yours? I can't judge.


In the second photo, I focused on the base of the leaves.

Most of the garden is still covered with snow, but after last weeks rain some snowdrops are coming up from still frozen ground in the earliest spots.
Pictures from yesterday.

Galanthus trojanus (it is not really yellow, but affected from cold or mulch)

'Glenorma' hasn't increased at all, seems to be very slow growing here.

'Irmi Poculi', an early one but very hardy and good snowdrop from a forumist from Austria.

'Wifi Big Bang', planted last summer, and it has come up strong and early. :)

Leena, how nice that your snowdrops are starting to bloom :)

Here the last and latest blooming snowdrop is about to bloom, I photographed it because I was impressed by its beautiful leaves. Third year blooming in my garden and starting to multiply, it makes me happy!


Galanthus platyphyllus

The leaves are looking good! I have once sown G.platyphyllus, but unfortunately seeds never germinated.

Those pictures were taken day before yesterday, and then yesterday we got  more snow. Maybe good that all the snowdrops are again covered with snow because it was -11C last night. So spring is very slow to come this year.

Leena, I hope Youll see more of Your snowdrops, soon! And Im looking forward to Your pictures!

Stefan, Your G. gracilis looks very interesting! You seem to specialize in snowdrops with four outers.  :) Gracilis is definitely my favourite among the species!

As to the G. x allenii in question: if the vernation is supervolute, which I cant tell from Your pic, it might well be this variety, though the green marks on the outers are very unusual. At least, the leaves seem green, but not shiny as those of G. woronowii, and broader.

Thanks Mariette :) Yes, the leaves definitely overlap at the base, but not as strongly as with your Galanthus allenii.

These two clumps of naturalized nivalis caught my eye when out picking ramsons.

It is interesting that there are naturalized nivalis also in Denmark. Maybe someday also in Finland.. :)

After more snow and cold couple of days, snowdrops are again trying to show up.

'Bess'


'Atkinsii' and 'Lady Fairhaven' on the left. I read after buying it, that it is maybe same as 'Ailwyn', which I already have.
