Galan­thus ni­valis AGM, English snow­drop

Per­fect for plant­ing un­der trees, snow­drops will quickly form dense rounded clumps of main­te­nance-free lu­mi­nous white. Each stem presents el­e­gant dan­gling flow­ers which are in­tri­cately de­tailed with green mark­ings.

Hy­acinthoide­s non-scripta, English blue­bell

This quintessen­tially Bri­tish na­tive fea­tures glau­cous leaves and pow­der-blue del­i­cate bells which swing from ink-blue arch­ing stems. In time, these plants will self-seed and cre­ate a stun­ning blue car­pet.

Eran­this hye­malis AGM, win­ter aconite

Tufts of bright but­ter­cup-yel­low minia­ture gob­lets top deeply cut and di­vided fresh green leaves. Aconites, as they are af­fec­tion­ately known, are per­fect for plac­ing un­der trees and be­tween shrubs to draw the eye.

Galan­thus ni­valis f. pleni­florus ‘Flore Pleno’ AGM, dou­ble snow­drop

Close in­spec­tion re­veals the lav­ish op­u­lence of this spe­cial yet mod­est dou­ble snow­drop. Its enor­mous, heav­ily pleated blooms can add an air of lux­u­ri­ance to any gar­den set­ting or pot.

AGM de­notes the Royal Hor­ti­cul­tural So­ci­ety’s spe­cial Award of Gar­den Merit for plants it con­sid­ers to of­fer an out­stand­ing per­for­mance in the gar­den.
