Galanthus 'Trym'



23rd February 2014


A remarkable snowdrop that seems to have six inner segments instead of the usual three inners and three outers. It was found in the garden of Mrs Jane Gibbs in Westbury on Trym. The name was suggested by Chris Brickell when he was sent plants for identification.
Since its discovery it has produced a number of seedlings with similar markings.
