One of a range of double flowered snowdrops raised by H.A.Greatorex. He described this cultivar and 'Ophelia'
as the best of the group for cultivation in the open garden.
It has made a good compact clump in the garden and seems to stand up to poor weather (which usually means
strong winds here) better than the other doubles I grow. It doesn't seem to be shorter than
any of the others, so perhaps it has stronger stems. Whatever the reason, when wind and rain have beaten
the others into the mud, this is often still standing.
It's a splendidly satisfying thing, for all the raggedness of the flowers as they swoop together
heavily over the blue-grey leaves like a flock of startled chickens.
