and New Year Snowdrops
We all know the snowdrop but to most people they bloom from the end of
January and have a peak in mid to late February. What most
people don’t realise is snowdrops can be in bloom in the
garden for 6 months of the year starting in October and ending
in early April.
This article will focus on three snowdrops which
will bring the season back to mid December to early January.
All three are different so once in the garden there will be no
problem telling them apart. They are ‘Castlegar’, elwesii
‘Haydn’ and plicatus subsp. byzantinus ‘Three Ships’.
