Galanthus 'Little Ben'

14th February 2017

An attractive large flowered cultivar that well deserved a name but which has been disregarded because it has tumbled out of the train marked 'Mighty Atom' like a lost passenger on the wrong platform. It's a lovely thing, it came from somewhere, the rest is unclear.
