About Galanthus 'Snow White';

There are 2 references in Bishop, Davis & Grimshaw (2001) to the name 'Snow White'. The first is on page 97, the second on page 101.

Galanthus 'Snow White' on page 97 is synonym of Galanthus 'Bohemia White', as provided in the text.

Galanthus 'Snow White' on page 101 is refered too as G. nivalis Poculiformis Group 'Snow White'. This Group is what we now call Skirt Group.

The beautiful picture showing Galanthus 'Snow White'  from Huisman is wrongly written on the label. The name should be written as Galanthus 'Snowwhite'. The picture shows, by the way, the correct Galanthus 'Snowwhite' from Huisman.

The cultivar name 'Snowwhite' is, of course, invalid because of the name published by Bishop, Davis & Grimshaw (the page 101 name), despite the difference in way of writing. I put this information on the label of the herbarium specimen I made of Galanthus 'Snowwhite' ex Huisman.

Best wishes,

Wim

Hans your green tipped from Avon may be elwesii Green Tip
Yes it is.

Until yesterday I thought it is a normal ´Flore Pleno` - but now it puzzles me, both bulbs I have have six outers and neat Inners - I missed to check the leaves - any Ideas what it could be if not ´Flore Pleno`?
Checking again the shown ´Flore Pleno` it seems to be a pure Galanthus nivalis but in both plants sitxth Outer are not perfect developed, will feed them and observe them the next years.

Must be a trick of the light but that first one seems cream-coloured rather than white.
Almost in Scotland.

I visited a couple of local garden centres today to see if there were any galanthus on sale, there are usually pots of G. elwesii and G.nivalis on sale about now. At the first there was nothing to be seen as the pots were unprotected and covered in about 15cm of snow but at the second I found this pot of very small G.nivalis, about 6cm to the top of the spathe. I thought it was quite nice for £3.14

The weather is so miserable this afternoon I am sitting catching up with the forum.  I tried to post some pictures I took the other day when the sun was shining but failed , I'm out of practice.

Here is G. 'Wind Turbine', in flower in a pot in the greenhouse and a seedling of W.T. flowering in the garden.  Also G. 'Trumps' and G. 'Rosemary Burnham' in the greenhouse.

Alan and Hagen:

You're both right.  The photo was taken in late afternoon so the sun was more yellow than the early part of the day .

Hi Jo

Great to see you here for this season.  I appeared back on SRGC a few weeks ago but haven't had many pics to share yet. 

You are lucky having the greenhouse to get ahead of the season.

Great pics.

Best wishes

A few snowdrops for you, John, as you are under snow at the moment.

Two small snowdrop scenes - notice there is no snow.

Jo...I love Wind Turbine and it's seedling - the name really suits it.  Was it one of your selected seedlings?  I like the triangular shape of the seedling.

Paddy - nice to see snowdrops in a garden without snow.  My brother hard pruned our Malus 'Golden Hornet' the other day without me knowing.  He has coppiced it to be precise....I was not happy :(
