Giant Snowdrop Galanthus elwesii

Common names include, greater snowdrop, giant snowdrop and Elwes's snowdrop.

This early flowering perennial originated from eastern Asia.  It has honey-scented nodding small white flowers and is one of the earliest signs of spring.  Giant snowdrops prefer moist well-drained soil in partial shade and are ideal for naturalising in woodland plantings, under trees and shrubs.  Alternatively, their drooping flowers can be more clearly seen when planted on walls or banks.

Plant your giant snowdrop bulbs around 10cm below the surface of the soil.  Please note, giant snowdrops might take a couple of years to establish.

Spring wildflower bulbs 'in the green' are supplied when they are actively growing. This can be a more reliable way to transplant species such as bluebells, aconites and snowdrops, and for all wildflower bulb species the plants can be more quickly and easily established than from dormant bulbs planted in autumn. Wildflower bulbs in the green can be easier to plant as it is clear where the bulbs have been planted.  In most cases, the plants will flower the following spring.

Let the foliage die back naturally after flowering as the leaves are still photosynthesising and sending nutrients into the bulbs for the next year's flowers.

Our wildflower and meadow bulbs are grown in the UK from British plants.
