That's interesting! Earlier this year I was given a few bulbs, sans name, of a double Leucojum vernum which is in a well-known private garden in Swarthmore. I wonder if they are one and the same. The same friend gave me a few bulbs of a newly named snowdrop which is in flower now, called Potter's Prelude. It seems to be of the elwesii flavor, but extremely early for that group here. J.
