This is one of my favourite snowdrops, producing large bold clumps that have a pronounced presence in the garden. A class plant!

|Clumps may be divided 'in the green': lifting clumps and dividing when in full foliage or lifting and dividing dormant bulbs in late summer. Use caution when 'dividing in the green' as broken roots will not re-grow until the following season unlike other perennials.
