Galanthus 'Bertram Anderson'



26th February 2010


A snowdrop with flowers that seem almost too large for the plant. For identification purposes, this puts it in a group that includes 'Mighty Atom' and the various clones that are commonly confused with it.
'Bertram Anderson' is a tall plant, while 'Mighty Atom' is a tiny little thing with giant flowers that dangle just above (hopefully) the soil surface.
Following the death of E.B.Anderson in 1971, Chris Brickell visited the garden and selected this snowdrop seedling to commemorate him. It was given an Award of Merit in 1996.
