Ballerina

A beautiful and neat double snowdrop, which can be admired even without turning it around. The special characteristic of this snowdrop is that immature flowers are turned slightly upright, so the inner perianths can be enjoyed even more.

It is a Galanthus x hybridus (cross between G. nivalis and G. elwesii). The plant was found by Phil Cornish at Hatherly Manor, Twigworth, Gloucestershire in 1991. The inner perianths display an inverted “V” at the apex, with a second green spot at the base.
