Order Galanthus Elwesii bulbs
The Galanthus elwesii flowers a month earlier than the ordinary snowdrop. With mild winters, Galanthus elwesii can start flowering as early as December. The bulbs are somewhat stronger than those of the ordinary snowdrop. Plant the bulbs in a sunny spot in slightly moist soil. They do well under deciduous shrubs. Every few years, a clump of snowdrops can be torn and planted out. In this way, a field of snowdrops can be realized within a few years! The height of Galanthus elwesii is usually between 10 and 30 cm, but the leaf length is variable.
The snowdrop also does well in a pot or container.
