Snowdrops
Snowdrops
In sheltered places in south-west England the snowdrop begins to flower at Christmas, and in other parts it is welcomed as one of the first signs of spring, flowering from January to March.
The drooping, bell-shaped flowers have six segments - three white ones outside the flower and three tipped with a bright spot inside it.
It is doubtful whether the snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis) is a native of Britain. It was probably introduced in medieval times from central Europe and it is rare in Ireland.
