pbs] Galanthus nivallis

The late Wayne Roderick once showed me a garden in Orinda, CA, where 
Galanthus elwesii was thoroughly naturalised and even 'escaping' to the 
roadside. As I recall, Orinda is on the very edge of the fog belt.

I think that G. elwesii, with its origins in Mediterranean conditions, would 
be a better bet in the Bay Area than G. nivalis from central Europe.
