A few G. nivalis from Slovenia, lovely little snowdrops.

And a few G. gracilis from Bulgaria.





In this group there are always flowers with four or more petals.


And in this group the florets are strangely deformed.

From the back, 'Wendy's Gold' with "Whittlesford Yellow" to the right being buried under "small" Helleborus foetidus 'Wester Flisk Group'.

"caucasicus late from ex Kath Dryden" ex Tim Ingram.  This flowered a lot earlier down south.

'Percy Picton', Silene dioica 'Grahams Delight', snowdrop not flowering this year.

Galanthus nivalis; does this look familiar Leena?  Dark-leaved violet that came with the garden.

I only have one type bought 2019 from a Dutch site and I don't know where exactly it is from unfortunately. I have another problem, it hasn't bloomed yet, it's been four seasons and it's developing very slowly. Maybe I'm not taking good care of this snowdrop.

Too bad. :( I have read that there are clones which flower not well.

Your Slovenian G.nivalis look really nice and I also like your G.gracilis. I haven't tried it here, I'm not sure if it is hardy enough, but I don't know..

Is it mine?  :) It's flower are like any other nivalis, l but it flowers well and has been the best increaser here and set's seeds reliably. I have another clone of G.nivalis (a bit smaller and later flowering) which is also a good increaser, but that clone never sets seeds. I have bought nameless G.nivalis from garden centers and once from Eurobulb, and they are all weaker than "my own", which seems to have adapted well here. I once sen't its seed to Alaska, I wonder how they are doing over there?

I think the primary lagodechianus clone in circulation in the UK is like this.  It produces plenty of leaves and few flowers.  It's quite easy to get hold of because nobody likes it!

Yes it is.  I'm not sure I could distinguish it by looks from the nivalis that were in my garden when I got here.  It has certainly increased well; there is another larger clump elsewhere.  I haven't noticed any seedlings yet.

Yes, it looks like normal nivalis. :)

Unseasonable warmth followed by many frosty nights have caused most of my snowdrops to go over. Still, a couple of yellows are at their best and there are still some very late ones like 'Hugh Mackenzie', 'Poculi Perfect' and late nivalis to look forward to.

Spring is on it's way. Two weeks ago it was 65, then cold and snow.

Mariette, моят G. lagodechianus сигурно е от мързеливите...  :(
Stefan, my first clone of G. lagodechianus was also of the heavily clumping but shy flowering kind. Meanwhile, I acquired several others which flower satisfactorily.

This one bears green marks on its outers.



This one flowers well, too.

That is a very cute little G. lagodechianus, Mariette!
Your first clone sounds a bit like one I have which originates from Kabardino-Balkaria. It is sterile and produces lots of daughter bulbs. Some years there are lots of flowers, some years there are mainly leaves. 2023 was a year for flowers...

Somehow the first pic got lost somewhere, but is no re-added.

My shy-flowering G. lagodechianus came from an elderly friend, later I ordered some from Baltic suppliers. The first pic shows one of these. Some years ago You were so kind to send me one which may be either G. lagodechianus or cabardensis - itīs still potted in the green-house, as it doesnīt flower regularly.

Mariette, your G.lagodechianus look very nice, and different from each other. The second one is so cute. :) I like it when leaves are so short during flowering time.

Anne, I like your plant.  I wonder if weather will affect how it flowers. Have you noticed differences in years when it does and when it doesn't flower?

Thank You Leena, I like these green-leaved species very much. Also, they seem to sport seedlings or mutations with yellow receptacle or marks quite often, which I appreciate very much. I think these go very well with green leaves, having noticed this in some of my G. lagodechianus, rizehensis and woronowii. Still, I have to watch if this feature ic stable.

This is interesting, I haven't noticed it (yet), but only now I will have more from different sources flowering (hopefully, when the snow melts) so that might help.
