We include the small bulb size of Galanthus elwesii (Greater snowdrop) in our assortment so that planting lots of Snowdrops is still reasonably priced. Please note that the small bulbs don’t always flower in the first year. It’s therefore advisable to plant the standard sized bulbs alongside the smaller bulbs. Bulbsize: 4/5 mm (instead of the standard size 6+mm).

Description Greater snowdrop: In January our woodland garden is white from all the Greater Snowdrops (Galanthus elwesii). Galanthus elwesii flowers a month earlier than the common Snowdrop, Galanthus nivalis. The Greater snowdrop is ideal for a stinzen-meadow, or for under deciduous trees and shrubs, but also grows well in a sunny, hot spot.

Every few years a clump can be lifted and divided, creating a carpet of Snowdrops in no time at all. Galanthus elwesii is native to southeastern Europe.
