galanthus nivalis common snowdrop
By far the most popular of the snowdrops we sell.
The snowdrop is usually the first flower to appear in a new year and brings with it the promise of spring. Each stalk produces one nodding flower head with white outer petals and inner petals which are tinged with green. The flower heads are followed by green seed pods which distribute the seeds close-by to form spreading snowdrop colonies. The leaves are long, narrow and greyish-green. Snowdrops are fairly common in the Britain and grow mainly in deciduous woods and beside streams.
Our new bulk buy option offers discounted prices for large plantings in woodland areas or naturalised areas.
Interesting Note: The common snowdrop - Galanthus Nivalis naturalises all over the British Isles with many a woodland area containing a sea of snow white flowers in mid Winter. This ever popular perennial remains a mainstay of many a landscaping project. Our stocks are lifted in Cambridgeshire and Norfolk.
