Raised by James Allen in 1888, this snowdrop is unusual in its long and slender pedicel, which holds the flower away from spathe. This causes the flower to swing in the slightest breeze making this variety recognizable even from a distance.
Another very well known variety. It has rounded flowers with deep green marks on the inner segments extending to the base and a large, round ovary.
Galanthus nivalis ‘Viridapice’
It would seem that this name has been applied to many different clones with varying degrees of green markings on their outer segments. Lots of room for discussion – there’s nothing galanthophiles like better!
Galanthus woronowii is unusual in that it has wide, green, shiny leaves rather than the glaucous ones of most other species. It is becoming more popular and easier to obtain.
