If you are looking for a snowdrop that's a bit more unusual, then 'Viridapice' is worth looking out for. Each of the long, delicate flowers has three petals with a large green mark on their tips. It makes an unusual accompaniment to other spring flower bulbs such as aconites and early flowering crocuses. Like all snowdrops it should be transplanted while growing (in the green), and dry bulbs often take a season to settle down before flowering.
