"Look at the pink, look at the pink, look at the pink, the pink, the pink!"

I'm misquoting Danny Kaye https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t80UDdbV3Mk because he sings "King" not "pink" but the idea is much the same - a wonderful magical pink colour that cannot be captured in any image.  I have seen these snowdrops in real life and I agree they are not the same pure white of most of the other snowdrops but they are no more a genuine pink colour than we have a genuine blue rose.
Almost in Scotland.

There is a glow not found on other snowdrops. I would describe it as an iridescence and in the right light looks pink!

For my first post on this site it seems appropriate to show a Pink Panther photo I recently put on the galanthophiles Facebook site. I am waiting for a pup from this but am very pleased with the colouring this year. Hope you like it.
PS The photo has gone sideways - not sure how to correct it!




 edit  by  maggi - rotated  the photo  for you, Richard- it  shows the  pink well!

Hi, no it has been grown outdoors in a pot - put into a planter with other RO's on the patio so we can enjoy them.
Regards
Richard

If you want to enjoy the pink, go out of the garish sun light. Use a rainy day ...then you feel in love to this and other soft colorated snowdrops ...

Less unique than these coloured beauties, but so welcome: Galanthus r-o 'Tilebarn Jamie', also planted this spring (from Andrew Thorpe):
Between Lyon and Grenoble/France -1500 ft above sea level - USDA zone 7B

Looking for my Galanthus peshmeni I found a problem: The snowdrops are there, but "invisible" because Epimedium pinnatum ssp. colchicum has captured the place. Now I do not know what to do. The two species seem to do well together, the only problem is that the snowdrops are not visible.

Should I dig out and separate them? And when is the best time to do it? I could also just cut the epimedium stalks on the bottom so that the snowdrops can be seen?
