Merlin is thought to be a hybrid between Galanthus elwesii and plicatus. Merlin is one of the most widely available and popular of the snowies with all-green inner petals. It is also known for carrying its flower at a slight angle, due to a short pedicel. Its plicatus sire gives the plant nice, waxy green foliage, and it is a strong grower in our garden.
