Description

There’s nothing better for lifting the garden out of the bleakness of winter than the cheery sight of snowdrops emerging in January and February. Galanthus woronowii ('Giant Snowdrop') will definitely give you that happy feeling that spring’s just around the corner every time you step outside. Be it a cold frosty morning, or a sunny-but-brisk winter’s day, these brave little flowers will effortlessly soldier on without fuss despite the chilly temperatures.

Galanthus woronowii is known as a giant snowdrop, although growing to a modest height of around 15cm this variety is actually fairly small in size, just like most snowdrops. The beautiful drop-shaped white flowers each have a fresh-green marking on the central petals for added interest. They’re very easy to grow – plant the bulbs in autumn and they’ll flower from January without any intervention. This classic woodland bulb looks great planted under trees or planted in pockets around shrubs as well as in borders and pots.

Galanthus woronowii gradually naturalises over time and produce larger clumps of flowers, so your Giant Snowdrops just get better and better as the years go on!
