Fieldgate Primrose Legacy

A beautiful snowdrop which resulted from a seedling, possibly a cross between “South Hayes” x “Greenfinch”.  One possible drawback is that it is only the mature bulbs that will show the true characteristics which are the two distinct markings on the outer segment plus the pagoda shape of the flower. The immature bulbs will have more in common with “South Hayes” as regards to the markings, and will not achieve the pagoda shape, nor will they achieve the height of the mature bulb. Usually the desired flower is achieved by the second flowering season.

Named in memory of Primrose Warburg.

Young bulbs.


To the purists a clump of this snowdrop may appear to be “messy” owing to the different markings on the flowers and the height differences.
