Galanthus nivalis and hybrids

Galanthus
G. Mighty Atom

The drooping white flowers of G. nivalis, the common snowdrop are familiar to most. Less well known are the dozens or more varieties that include doubles or larger flowered forms. The second picture is is of the cultivar ‘Mighty Atom’ snowdrops. These plants are in 3.5 inch pots  Price is $5.00 

Some background and history. John Gray was a well-known British snowdrop enthusiast and who’s garden contained some extremely fine and unnamed snowdrops. When he died in 1952, some of the finest plants passed to E.B. Anderson (another great hybridizer), who made a special attempt to collect them. Thanks to his efforts one clump was to be named John Gray and remains distinct to this day. T Plant with early blooming primroses, Cyclamen couem or Iris reticulata — purples esp. Hardiness z 5  Bloom: Feb. March Light: Excellent for sun or in part shade which gives me a segue to cyclamen.
