Galanthus gracilis 'Highdown'

4th February 2007

Galanthus gracilis is a distinctive species with long thin greyish leaves that have a characteristic twist in them. Once seen, never forgotten.
This form originated with Sir Frederick Stern and takes its name from his garden. As vigorous as a monkey with an itch to scratch.
