GLEN CHANTRY INTRODUCTIONS AND OTHERS 2024

New introductions in 2024

‘Chantry Delight’ Substantial rounded flowers with strong green tips. Two eyes sometimes merging on the inner segments. A very eye catching snowdrop.



‘Chantry Demure’ A crescent of green spots at the apex of the outers blend upwards creating the impression of a faint green wash.



‘Chantry Duke’ Strong upright stems support substantial flowers with large ovaries. Outer segments have two distinctive marks the lower being a bold crescent.



‘Chantry Harmony’ Elegant rounded flowers on very long pedicels. Distinct green lines follow the contours of the outer segments. A group in flower is a splendid sight.



‘Chantry Old Gold’ A firm favourite at Glen Chantry. The pedicel, ovary, sinus mark and upper stems are all tinged with old gold giving the plant a golden glow in winter sunshine.

‘Ilse Bilse’ Named from a German nursery rhyme. A rare colour change variety rarely offered



‘John Morley’ An eye catching end of season snowdrop which has increasingly impressed us as it has become established here. Glistening white rounded outer segments create a gracefully rounded shape. Two inner marks are revealed as the flowe  ages. A stand out snowdrop of great merit.



Some other varieties on the list

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 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.


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 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.

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.

‘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!

‘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 u’ [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.’

‘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 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.

‘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.

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.

‘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.

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.

‘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.

‘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
‘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.

‘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.

These are so wonderful, it is a torture to see the lists and not being able to order.
Glen Chantry snowdrops are my favourites, and the bulbs were always so good quality, too.
