	I've grown L. aestivum for ages. I just noticed a first 
flower on bulbs purchased as 'Gravetye Giant'. I bought bulbs with 
this name specifically to compare it to the old unnamed variety grown 
and seeding around. I can see no difference.

	I understand that there is a cv with yellow spots replacing 
the green at the distal tips of each petal. Does such a cv exist ? 
and what is it called?

	Are there any other cultivars or un-name variants available 
in cultivation or from collectors?

	Both spring species (this and vernum) do very nicely here 
with a minimum of care so I am alwasy curious about variations on a 
these if it might suceed in my climate.

	So does anyone grow other spring flowering hardy Leucojum sp or cv?

			Thanks	Jim W.
