I think Green witch turned into Monti Picentini, which is a far better name in my humble opinion.

It would be helpful to know which category added snowdrops belong too:  sandersii, GRYM, YOGIM etc which would add to the usefulness of the list.  When the weather is not so good I'll indicate on the original list at the top of the thread.

'Yellow Angel' must be in a class of its own as an albino with a yellow receptacle.  http://johngrimshawsgardendiary.blogspot.co.uk/2013/02/winter-gardens-tour.html
Almost in Scotland.

I think it would sit with Audrey Vockins syn Gunter's Geist in the tinted group? No, perhaps not...but no doubt there are others for which that could be said and we could endlessly divide the list, far better to have a few in a group don't you think?

Does anybody know which name has priority, ´Audrey Vockins´or ´Günters Geist´?

Mariette I am about to separate them.  According to Freda Cox 'Audrey Vockins' is a plicatus and 'Günter's  Geist' is sandersii although in Günter's book he says they are the same plant.  Perhaps someone who grows them can let us know.

Absolute, but some obvious groupings will give rise to small groups e.g.

Doubles
Lady Elphinstone
Netherhall Double Yellow

and I think that's the lot for that group.

Thanks for Your effort, Brian! It would be great to learn that there are already three of this kind, which I like so very much. Another may be the G. r.o. Ruben showed earlier, but that one was not named, then.

´Kelways´may join the YOGIM group, if it becomes available.

Just a little note about 'Midas' - Alan asked me to say that although Val's article says that there are possibly 300 bulbs now - these are all at various stages of growth and are certainly not all flowering size yet!! ;)
