    Dainty, double, pure white, pear-shaped flowers with green-tipped inner petals in January and February and narrow, grey-green leaves. These delightful double snowdrops are ideal for naturalising in the border under deciduous trees and shrubs. The Royal Horticultural Society has recognised this variety as a plant of outstanding excellence and has given it their Award of Garden Merit.

  • 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.
  • CAUTION do not eat ornamental bulbs
