Galanthus from Czech Rep.
« on: February 28, 2008, 11:41:52 AM »
Hi all ,

Here are now some pics of cultivars from Czech. Rep.

Snow White Gnom - thats the tiniest little plant I know ( high 4 cm)
Bohemia White ( I have shown this plant also in a other topic )
Tatjana ( there is a bit confusion with this plant -sometimes not correct written the name -and sometimes other pics - my plant is from the finder and it is named after his wife -I have the label written from him )
Streifen -Weh ( a nice member has confirm me this name )

Hagen :

the name of the wife of Wolfgang is : Tatjana

I had sent him , some years ago,  a drawing of "Wolfgang" and "Tatjana" -he told me both are correct !

Always I try : on the safe side

Some confusion here. Galanthus 'Tatiana' is a Greatorex double. I think Hans is saying that G. tatjana is a different plant with a different name?

Anthony ,

Ooops - I have never heard before that Tatiana is a Greatorex cultivar .....there must be really something wrong .
The problem is here in Germany it exist several different plants from Tatjana -and there is also a different pic in the Snowdropbook -maybe can Hagen make a little more ligth in this problem after the next weekend ....

I would think the Greatorex double is "Titania" in line with the Shakespeare heroine theme.
