Galanthus Nivalis Single

The common Snowdrop. The real "Herald of Spring", Galanthus Nivalis flowers from January to March but it hasn’t always been native, first arriving in the UK from Southern Europe during the 16th Century. It’s one of the most longed-for spring flowers, bringing hordes of enthusiasts, or Galanthophiles, out to visit gardens every year.  The snowdrop bulb has evolved a couple of interesting coping strategies. Firstly, the special spiked leaf at the top of its stem helps it to push through the snow, and secondly it hangs its head to keep the pollen dry.
