Buy Galanthus nivalis 'Viridapice' snowdrop: An unusual snowdrop with a hooded flower

  • Position:partial shade
  • Soil: humus-rich, moist but well drained soil
  • Rate of growth: average
  • Flowering period: January and February
  • Bulb size: 5/6

    A taller variety with a distinctive, long spathe which looks like the flowers have a hood. This is a good choice for those looking for a slightly more unusual snowdrop, or those wanting to add to their collection as it is still quite rare. Both the inner and outer petals are white, but have green markings which make them look as if they have been painted with a brush.

  • Garden care: Plant bulbs as soon as possible to prevent them drying out, in naturalistic drifts 10cm (4in) deep in September or October. Where bulbs are planted in grass do not cut the grass until after the leaves have died right back. Divide large colonies after flowering while the leaves are still green for use in other moist, well-drained areas.

  • Harmful if eaten/skin irritant
