This is a species of snowdrop that I think probably shouldn't grow here, as it is native from the Eastern Mediterranean (what used to be called the Levant), up into Turkey. I grow it in kind of a dry, shady spot, and it seems happy enough. It has two green spots on each inner petal, the lower of which has been described as horseshoe-shaped; it is a very distinctive little snowie.
I had no idea there were so many species of snowdrops. I'll have to look better at mine--when they come up. Thanks!Post a Comment
