Hello All. I don't know galanthus and only have one. But it is blooming now, here in a Chicago suburb (NW sie) . I brought it from an abandoned house north of here about 10 years ago and it has bloomed ever since with no care whatsoever in a clayey loam. It has gone through -25° F and survived. It is never more than 4" high. Is the size and hardiness a clue to the species? They all look essentially the same to me, except for the size factor. (Parading my ignorance). Can anybody offer a reasonable guess as to species. I will believe anything you say, contrary to my usual skepticism.
