Galanthus nivalis 'Cordula'

Galanthus nivalis 'Cordula' is a very fragile, narrow-leaved snowdrop. Also the flowers are of a fine structure, with narrow petals, which also allow a look at the inner petals with their green mark when in bud.
It was discovered in a garden in a historic district of St.Gallen, Switzerland by Yanik Neff in 2015. At that time it was a very young plant with a tiny bulb, growing in a crack between the cobbled paving and a house front. 
The species name (not to be confused with 'Cordelia') describes the curling of the petals towards the end of the flowering period like a cord (Kordel in German) and look even narrower at that point.
