Galanthus elwesii 'Beany'

Galanthus elwesii 'Beany'


Arguably the very finest snowdrops with green-marked outer segments are selections of G. elwesii with large flowers and broad foliage is ‘Beany’. The picture says it all. Green outer segment markings are some of the best of the cultivars of its species. Clumping habit. If I were really forced to choose a green-tipped G. elwesii, ‘Beany’ would make the final three and I I would be extremely hard-pushed to narrow it down further. Found at Waltham Place, Berkshire by the then head gardener Gert-Jan van der Kolk (pers. comm.) It is named after the late son of the owners.
