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. A good planting companion is Scilla miczenkoana (Misczenko squill).
