Synopsis
Snowdrops are magical flowers, emerging from the depths of winter. They signal the beginning of the new year and the promise of spring unlike any other flower. They are beautiful, elegant flowers both in large drifts and close up with many variations in size, flower shape, markings, colour and scent. There are 19 species and over 500 varities worldwide with many that are rare and unusual. They have become extremely popular in recent years so much so that this snowdrop craze has been dubbed "Galanthomania" and snowdrop collectors are called "Galanthophiles" particulary seeking out new and unusual varieties. Many snowdrops sell for high prices for a single plant and in recent years some of the rarest have sold at auction for hundreds of pounds.
