Hi Jane, I didn’t realise there was a variety that flowered now 🤔 @pelly

comment
pelly

They're not really snowdrops, they belong to the amaryllis family rather than the galanthus family and they are much taller. They are so worth growing Karen 😍 @KOutdoors

That’s a shame Joan. Even though the planting instructions give full/partial sun these do much better than the ones in the sunny border. It might be worth a try 🤔 @joanboston
