Galanthus elwesii

Galanthus elwesii
greater snowdrop

Common name greater snowdrop
Family amaryllidaceae
Life cycle perennial bulb (Z4-8)
Flowers white
Size 3"
Light part shade

Snowdrops look best when massed together, but for some reason, we have just a single one that stubbornly reappears every year. And even in its solitary form, we appreciate it.
This species is native to Turkey, and more tolerant of hot summer weather than its cousin G. nivalis.

We left this plant behind in our Pennsylvania garden (and wish it well); we don't grow it in Houston.
