Snowdrops (Galanthus)

At a glance, snowdrops may all appear the same. A closer inspection however reveals there are some 20 species and numerous cultivars (cultivated varieties). Some have a delicate single flower, others boast a double-flowered head. I have seen some named cultivars on sale at £20 for a single flower. I now appreciate snowdrops all the more!
