« on: June 09, 2023, 11:32:03 AM »
From Wol and Sue Staines…  Resting list being sent out now!

“GLEN CHANTRY INTRODUCTIONS  AND OTHERS ON OUR LIST 6-2023
Photos of many of the plants on our list can be found using google or other search engines and on the Scottish Rock Garden Galanthus Forum and the Galanthus facebook site. Drawings with descriptions of many can be found in Freda Cox  ‘A gardeners Guide to Snowdrops ‘[second edition]”

New introductions


Galanthus ‘Chantry Bimbo’ [GC92] Selected and named by the late Alan Street whilst on a visit to Glen Chantry. A neat growing variety with glaucus leaves. A yellow mark almost covers the inner segments.


Galanthus ‘Chantry Charming’ [GC75] A graceful flower with suffused green lines on spoon shaped outers with a hint of green eyes on the subtly blended inners.


Galanthus ‘Chantry Copycat’ [GC65] The two bold marks on the outers copy the marks on the inner segments.


Galanthus ‘Chantry Jezebel’ [GC82] A striking variety with a bold, dark green linear marking down the middle of each of the outer segments. This mark is accentuated by the white edging.

More new introductions: again, descriptions by  Wol and Sue. 


Galanthus ‘Chantry Tease’ [GC70] An exciting colour change variety found as a seedling near 'Blonde Inge' The sinus mark starts green and gradually changes to a bright yellow as the flower matures.


Galanthus ‘Tring’ Thought to be a South Hayes seedling but sturdier and of a strong constitution with very strong dark green lines on the outers. A special snowdrop from a special couple. Our thanks to Margaret and the late John Noakes for sharing it with us.


 Galanthus Chantry Trinket [GC79]  An impressive, chunky snowdrop with globular flowers. The ovary and inner mark are a delightful soft yellow.


 Galanthus ‘Dorothea’ Named for Uli Lessnow's late wife. A striking and substantial flower with two inner marks that become more yellow as the season progresses.

  ‘Seraph’


 ‘Veronica Cross’



  ‘York Minster’ a

Some other varieties on the list

Images of those marked  xx  may be seen in this thread from Glen Chantry’s list last year…. https://www.srgc.org.uk/forum/index.php?topic=18972.0

xx Galanthus ‘Chantry Dazzle’ [GC 78] A Glen Chantry seedling with a long, thin, yellow ovary. A yellow bone shaped mark covers the length of the inners and is framed by elegant outer petals. A stunning and distinctive yellow which has proved very popular.

xx  Galanthus ‘Chantry Diva’ [GC 61] Diva has beautiful upward flared outer petals with a bold Trym like mark. Very impressive  and distinctive especially in a group. Looks to be on stage in a ballet performance.

xx ‘Chantry Duchess’ [GC 83] Found as a seedling beside  ‘E.A. Bowles’  it is hardly surprising that this  remarkably imposing  Ipoc has the size and stature of its presumed parent. Its six segments of equal length are identically marked with a green crescent. The green shading on the claws adds to its appeal. Much drooled over by all the galanthus  cognoscenti  who have seen it!

xx Galanthus ‘Chantry Gem’ [GC 53]  A real favourite from the garden at Glen Chantry.  Large flowers on tallish stems with two large dominant rich green marks on the outer petals and an all green inner. Can often be picked for the Christmas Day vase.

xx ‘Chantry Gold Cross’ [GC 58]  A very exciting seedling from our garden.  Possibly  the first yellow snowdrop with a gold cross on the inner petals. Simply  stunning.

xx ‘Wol’s Chubby’ [GC 59] Selected for its impressively  large chubby flowers and named in honour of  Wol’s constant battle with his waistline. Its heavily puckered flowers have an all green inner mark.

 ‘Chantry Bonus’ [GC12]  An impressive variety which when mature can have very large flowers that measure over 40mms in length.  It has distinct green lines on the tips of the outer segments and an all green inner. Called Bonus because it  occurred in one of our sand plunges.’

xx ‘Chantry Cracker’ [GC35]  A much admired seedling with well shaped flowers. The outers have a striking heavy green apical mark which bleeds slightly upwards as distinct green lines. A fetching heart shaped inner mark.

‘Chantry Dougal’[GC60]  Reminds us of the doleful facial expression of Dougal from the Magic Roundabout. The inner marks form the features and the outers the drop ears.

Chantry Empress’ [GC 43]  Impressive in its size and shape. The outer petals lengthen to measure  in excess of 40mms on mature specimens. The flower reminds us of the shape of empress line robes that have been dipped in green.

 ‘Chantry Lady’ [GC46]  Distinctive  intricate shape with the outers flaring out at the edges. It has  a bold green spear shaped mark covering half the length of the outers. H shaped inner mark. It maintains  its shape for most of its flowering period.

 ‘Ladylike’ [GC47]  It has bold markings that are a lighter green than ‘Chantry lady’ and a more open flower shape.  It has proved easier  in cultivation with us.

 ‘Chantry Taffeta’ [GC11]  A lovely variety with heavy puckering on the substantial outer petals. The sinus mark diffuses into two blurred lines. Flowers are held on a graceful arching pedicel. Deservedly popular.

 xx ‘Essex Girl’ [GC 45]  Pronounced frilliness on the edges of the outer segments and a bold green etched crescent at the tip. The inner mark has two green fangs extending from the ovary. All singing, all dancing, hence Essex Girl.

‘Glenorma’ [GC 8]  Its huge, glistening white flowers make this variety, in a tunnel full of flowering snowdrops, instantly recognizable even to novice galanthophiles.

‘Uli’s Gift’ did not arise at Glen Chantry. It usually flowers early in the new year. The substantial significantly puckered outer segments compliment the two inner segment markings which initially are a light green transforming later to a lovely lemon yellow. A real favourite here but we are big fans of the changelings.

xx ‘Wol Staines’ [GC18]  A stunning plicate seedling from South Hayes with a green blush near the ovary. The puckering is highlighted by green dots forming a crescent at the tip of the outers. The distinctive green inner mark adds much to the flowers impact. We are flattered that Anne Repnow has chosen a photo of  Galanthus ‘Wol Staines’ to appear on the cover of her recent book on snowdrops.

Some other favourites on our list
xx  ‘Grakes  Gold’ Initially the leaves are a lovely golden colour complimenting the golden brightness of the ovary and inner markings on the flowers. As the flower fades the leaves gradually turn green. From Valentin Wijnen.  A very special variety.

xx ‘Grakes Yellow’   A very late flowering soft lemon yellow snowdrop. A welcome  addition to extend the flowering season of these much coveted yellow snowdrops.  Another treasure from Valentin  Wijnen.

  ‘The Dragon’ Originating from Scotland this variety has strongly textured outer segments and a very distinctive and easily recognizable  X shaped inner mark. Flowers later in the season.

‘Witchwood’ Found by Ruby Baker and introduced by Ronald Mackenzie. A late season flowerer with a large patch of green on the outers. The inner bright green mark suffuses to a yellow tinge.  Rarely offered.
