Little White Flowers

Snowdrops, little white flowers that bloom when there is little else in the garden. They make a wonderful display and cope with all types of atrocious weather. Snowdrops have captured the hearts of many and although there is reference to snowdrops as early as the 4th century BC it wasn't until the mid nineteenth century that there was renewed interest in them.

By the late 20th century the interest in snowdrops had gathered momentum. Such is the fever surrounding these little flowers that some very high prices have been paid for new cultivars. With some 2000 plus cultivars the scope for collecting and becoming a confirmed galanthophile is extensive.
