Double Snowdrop Galanthus nivalis 'Flore Pleno'
One of the first spring flowers appearing from late winter to early spring, the double snowdrop has a distinctive dainty nodding double flower on each head. Their slightly fragrant, delicately marked flowers are a good companion to winter aconites.
Double snowdrops prefer moist well-drained soil in partial shade and are ideal for naturalising in woodland plantings, under trees and shrubs. Best planted in sweeping drifts under deciduous trees or on walls or banks or alongside paths. They are low maintenance and deer and rabbit resistant.
Please note, double snowdrops can take a while to become established, and the bulbs might only produce leaves in the first year of growth as their energies will be going into producing good, strong roots. Rather than cutting it off, let this foliage die back naturally; the leaves are still photosynthesising and sending nutrients into the bulbs.
Our highest-quality wildflower and meadow bulbs are grown in the UK from British plants.
