Yellow Snowdrops
« on: January 24, 2017, 12:07:38 PM »
I have been sent a list of 'Gold Group' snowdrops - whatever that means and there were some that were not listed such as Anne's Dryad Gold Group and Taavi Tuulik's Estonian Spirit Group so I have cranked up the brain cells and put this together.  I wonder if there are many that I have not included - there are bound to be some glaring omissions, and it would be good to have others opinions as to what is missing/shouldn't be included.  I had thought that if there was enough interest we could also put up photos so that they were all in one place - like we did with the Galanthus that are truly easy to recognize thread.  What do others think?  Here is a basic list!

Updated list starts here:

Golden Fleece = Trym yellow form
Woodpeckers = Galanthus nivalis sandersii ex (Lallie) Cox

I think this is a good idea, Brian, although I have only one or two of the named ones so I won't be much help with photographs.  I also have a couple of my own yellows under evaluation but I'm not yet sure if they are good enough to be named.

Good idea, and though I don't have much to contribute, but I'm sure I will read this thread many times later. :)

I could be wrong but my impression is that Joe Sharman's attempt to breed a yellow analogue of 'Trym' gave rise to more than one seedling.  A picture of one of these appeared in Gunter Waldorf's book captioned as Yellow Trym.  Ultimately one of these seedling was given the name 'Golden Fleece'.  I'm not sure if 'Golden Fleece' and Yellow Trym are one and the same but if Yellow Trym is different, will ever be distributed?  Yellow Trym may only ever be known as a picture in a book.   
Almost in Scotland.
