Galanthus angustifolius

Galanthus angustifolius is rare in cultivation, but can be found in the wild in the northern Caucasus mountains  at heights from 700-1000m (1,2). It tends to grow in deciduous forests. Like G. nivalis and G. reginae-olgae, its leaves display applanate verniation. Scapes reach a height of 7-14cm. It’s name means narrowleaved, fittingly, leaves are only 3 to 7mm wide, with a length of 8 to 16cm.

It is rare in the wild and even rarer in cultivation. It appears to have an affinity for loam-type soils. Winters in the northern Caucasus are colder than in western Europe, so the plants should be hardy in cultivation.
