Galanthus nivalis 'Maximus'
21st January 2010
A bit of an oddity, this cultivar is officially extinct and this picture is therefore an illusion.
If I am to be fair (and I don't see any particularly good reason) then I would admit that this is almost
certainly not the original cultivar. I have just bought it because I liked the flower. It is larger than
G.nivalis, at least in the form I grow, and is taller and later.
Where it was selected, who named it, where did it come from. Perhaps I will never know.
Where did I buy it? Wisley!
