Pyrenees to Ukraine. Galanthus nivalis has naturalized in our gardens and provides a much needed display when our late winter customers arrive. The down-facing, pendant white flowers consist of three inner and three outer tepals. A characteristic upside-down, green "V" is found on the inner tepals. If early visitors were bold enough to crawl on their knees in the mud, they might catch the wiff of a light fragarance.

Late winter to mid-spring.  4 in.
