Galanthus 'St. Sylvestre'

Galanthus 'St. Sylvestre'


Resulting from an extremely unusual pairing of the old single-marked G. elwesii 'Three Leaves' and G. fosteri, this recent cultivar takes its name from the feast of Saint Sylvestre in the Gregorian Callendar (New Year Eve) when it typically flowers. The foliage is intermediate in colour between the parents, a rather unusual sage green, and the flowers have a slightly paler basal inner segment marking as might be expected of such a hybrid. This choice addition to the range of very early-flowering snowdrops occurred in Mark Brown's Normandy garden.
