Selected snowdrops at the Garden

We are gradually developing a collection of snowdrops at the Garden, in addition to the widespread planting of naturalised snowdrops such as Galanthus nivalis and Galanthus nivalis 'Flore Pleno'.  The collection of snowdrops have been planted out in raised beds, and in the future they will be gradually introduced into the deciduous borders in the Lower Wilderness, where they will combine well with our mass plantings of Helleborus x hybridus, Cyclamen coum, and Eranthis hyemalis.

Here is a selection of some of our snowdrops in the raised beds, which you can see if you visit the garden at our next Snowdrop & Hellebore day on Sunday 16th February, 11.00am - 3.00pm, all welcome.

Galanthus plicatus 'Augustus'
Broad pleated leaves with attractive plump well rounded flowers
Increases well

         Galanthus elwesii 'Grumpy'
                    A popular snowdrop with the inner markings resembling a face

Galanthus 'Merlin'
A very attractive variety with inner petals totally green

We look forward to welcoming you to the Garden to view our extensive planting of hellebores, and our increasing range of snowdrops
