A true sign of early Spring in my courtyard border this morning.
Wonderful! I planted some a couple years ago, but there are only a couple blooms. Hopefully some day they will bulk up enough to look like your lovely patch!
Thanks for the pics
Very pretty. What cultivar/species are they schoolhouse? They look chubbier than the common Galanthus nivalis. Snowdrops all over and done with where I am.
Oh gosh, I planted them so many years ago I don't recall the species,sorry flora. CMK - these have not multiplied very rapidly, only in the last several years have I seen them appearing in different parts of the border.
Maybe Galanthus plicatus????? Buds and leaves too broad for G. nivalis.
I love snowdrops so much. I have some coming up around my yard too. I just kinda shoved them all over, so it's fun seeing where they come up.
They are there under the snow when it finally melts, the true harbinger of spring.
So very pretty, mine are finished for this year. I have three different varieties, one I'm sure is G.ikariae, one might be G.elwesii (has two green blotches) the gal that gave them to me just called them giant snowdrops. The other one is just a small run of the mill with grey green leaves.
My neighbor has another that has two green blotches on the inner petals but they are a different shape than the ones on mine. Mine are all finished now so can't post pictures My elwesii? leaves are sixteen inches long now, my neighbor's, the leaves are only eight or so inches long but in full sun where mine are in shade.
I know each species have many named cultivars, I guess it's next to impossible to find out which ones I have.
If you want to see some very pretty snowdrops do a search for Judy's Snowdrops.
