The big question has to be ... how many of these are lost, held by one person or available to buy?

I have an Ecusson lookalike and a yellow in a raised bed where there have never been any yellows. Must check that the latter is still there after the high wind and rain. I'll pick it for a photo and discussion

OOh - a nice peep of yellow on the inner segments!

There is a yellow called 'Donaugold' on sale on eBay: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Galanthus-Donaugold-a-Collectors-Snowdrop-/282348654878?hash=item41bd4a911e:g:qygAAOSwopRYlGyU .  I cannot find this one on the list

Donaugold is Rudi Bauer's plant. Interestingly not "Donaugeld". Unheimlich.

Steve, did you mean Donaugelb (Danube yellow) or real Donaugeld (Danube money)?

 ;) Is ┤Donaugold┤found or just sold by Rudi Bauer? Some sources mention Wolfgang Kletzing as the finder - a galanthophile who is very generous, but doesn┤t sell.

Mariette - not sure - mine came from Rudi but it may be Wolfgang's plant originally.
Hagen - Gruss - I don't mind, it just feels slightly odd juxtaposing Donau = Deutsch with Gold = English. But hey, the sun is beating down, its 10C, all my snowdrops are lifting their skirts and its not today's biggest problem.Even the earliest crocus and iris reticulata are open on my Alpine bed. What next - bees!

...and a polite forumist has gently pointed out go me that gold in English is gold in german too, so null point for Steve and back to German classes! :'(

I heartily applaud this sentiment

What next - bees!

I have a near-neighbour who keeps bees.  They are in and out of my snowdrops throughout the winter every time the weather gets a litle warmer.
