Galanthus reginae-olgae 'Alex Duguid'



15th November 2016


Galanthus reginae-olgae is a lovely thing with both autumn and spring flowering forms. Taxonomically 'Alex Duguoid' belongs to the latter and then misbehaves by flowering in the autumn or early winter.
Originated at Edrom Nursery and named after the former proprietor who had distributed if fairly widely. If nothing else it has proved its vigour and durability.
