The scoop on Galanthus Giant Snowdrop Woronowii

Galanthus woronowii is the last of the snowdrops to flower, extending the blooming season of these little beauties. The flowers produce tiny amounts of yellow pollen which can be seen glowing through the translucent petals where they attach to the stem like tiny botanical lanterns. The outer petals on woronowii are also extra full and rounded.

Why Grow Snowdrops / Galanthus?

  • Super early blooming, endearing, economical (they grow into sizeable clumps over time) and tough enough to withstand bitter cold, snowdrops are sweet flowers
  • These perennials form substantial colonies, larger with each passing spring, carpeting gardens, stream banks and sites under deciduous trees
  • Snowdrop blooms are pendulous and white, with fine decorations in bright green or chartreuse yellow
  • Galanthus woronowii is the only snowdrop with shiny green leaves (the others have sage gray foliage); these create a pretty groundcover in the spring garden

Native to coastal regions along the Black Sea, galanthus woronowii thrives in a wide variety of sites including deciduous forests, river banks and rocky cliffs.
