Artist's collection

Galanthus or snowdrops are dwarf bulbous perennials with linear or strap-shaped leaves, and solitary, often honey-scented, nodding flowers with 3 white outer tepals and 3 smaller inner ones often marked with green.

'S. Arnott' is a perennial growing quite large, with narrow, grey-green leaves and solitary, nodding, fragrant white flowers 2.5cm in length, the inner segments with a thin V-shaped mark at the tip.

The fragrance is only obvious when the plants are warm (such as in the sun, or in the studio to paint) and it's delicious!!
