||October (flowerbulb planting time)
We include the small bulb size of Galanthus woronowii 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 small bulbs. Bulbsize: 4/5 mm (instead of the standard size 6+mm).
Description Woronow's snowdrop: The Woronow's snowdrop, Galanthus woronowii, has pure white flowers and shiny, fresh-green leaves. Galanthus woronowii originally comes from around the Black Sea where it grows in forests.
Every few years a clump can be lifted and divided, creating a carpet of Snowdrops in no time at all.
Unfortunately the leaves are a little more susceptible to frost damage than Galanthus elwesii and Galanthus nivalis. However, in the 25 years that we have grown Galanthus woronowii it has only once suffered from frost damage (winter 2011/2012), and Dutch winters are generally more severe than English winters.
