Galanthus reginae-olgae

Plant details

Not all snowdrops flower in spring. Galanthus reginae-olgae blooms in autumn. It looks similar to Galanthus nivalis, except it tends to flower before developing leaves.

Grow Galanthus reginae-olgae in well-drained soil in sun to partial shade. Found growing wild in Italy, Greece and the former Yugoslavia, it can struggle in our colder, wetter climate. If you have heavy soil, consider growing in containers.
