nivalis "Doncaster Double Charmer"

This snowdrop is a well marked double, marred, I think, by the inflated spathe which towers over the flower.

The book implies that the flower should only have three outer segments but in my experience (and as the photographs show) I find this can vary, with some plants producing four outer segments. It may have something to do with the maturity of the bulb as all of my plants have come from a single bulb and have been propagated purely by division. Further investigation is obviously required.
