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.
