Galanthus x valentinei 'Strasbourg Twins'


'Moby Dick' not really whale-sized, but has a nice expression

Meanwhile, E A Bowles is in full flower ( what a find by Michael Myers), and also three seedling clones from E A Bowles x The Bride. These are therefore plicatus x elwesii.

'E.A.Bowles' is one of my favourites, and your seedlings seem also very nice with round flowers.

Gail, it is nice that you write also some background of them. Snowdrops look so perfect when pictured on black background:).

Nice clones, Anne; another great success from your breeding programme.  Lets hope they have hybrid vigour. 
Almost in Scotland.

Unnamed. Found by me. I think it is a hybrid between elwesii and gracilis.

Galanthus elwesii ‘David Shackleton’ - one of the later flowering elwesii and a very good garden plant, building up well.


I was enjoying watching a big Queen bumblebee doing some cross-pollinating for me today. She chose 'Miss Adventure' x rhizensis - not a cross I'd have thought of so I shall be interested to see what comes of it!

(Sorry Maggi I'm having trouble with my images again! )  edit by maggi - no worries Gail, makes me feel useful!  Lovely  snowdrop!

One week of warm spring weather (last week we had -13°C, this week +18°C) has rushed all the snowdrops into full flowering.  This is one of those years where the air in the garden is carrying a subtle perfume of snowdrop flowers.
And they are still spreading further in the garden & surroundings, single bulbs appear at new spots while some established large clumps still seem to double every year.
Bulboholic, but with moderation.

Nice snowdrops from everyone:).

Hannelore, your 'Anglesey Abbey' is so perfect. Mine (still under snow) hasn't been as perfect for some reason, maybe it needs time to settle.

Pauli, it must be wonderful to find such different snowdrops, lucky you!

Here are some more, now established in the garden.

I especially liked the one in the middle picture, very nice green tipped.
