Galanthus reginae-olgae

>Another fall-blooming snowdrop is Galanthus peshmenii. It increases well 
for me (under a tree) but doesn't flower much. It is possible that the 
correspondent's fall snowdrop got mixed into a shipment of 
wild-collected snowdrop bulbs from Turkey at some time in the past. (I 
must add that I got G. peshmenii from an irreproachable cultivated source!)

Since this was brought up a while ago, it looks to me like seeds of G. peshmenii, as well as any other galanthus, are not included in CITES Appendix II, and so can be acquired legally. Small Lots of Seed permit still required.
I have the elwesii type ‘Teresa Stone’; they’re up about 1 cm in the garden right now. About to get their little green noses frozen, but they manage anyway.
