A large growing selection of 'Atkinsii' that has all of the vigour of its parent, and much tidier flowers.

This originated with Edrom Nursery in Berwickshire. It has a less triangular shape than 'Atkinsii'and doesn't produce the odd extra segments which is a good thing in some ways.
On the other hand, it brings it into the same range as a lot of 'large flowered' snowdrops and it isn't especially distinctive.
