At the end of a long gloomy winter there is nothing to match the breath-taking sight of a sweeping carpet of snowdrops, a marvellous herald of spring. Elwesii is a spectacular giant snowdrop originating from eastern Asia. Elwesii's honey scented nodding flowers are formed from an outer whorl of snowy white tepals encasing smaller inner tepals, flared and marked green at the tips. Fine 15-20cm stems sport dainty strap shaped leaves. It holds the prestigious Award of Garden Merit. Flowering January-March. 5cm+ bulbs supplied.
