Galanthus elwesii 'Fly Fishing'
Galanthus elwesii 'Fly Fishing' was introduced into the market in 2011 and caused a small sensation among the people who have seen it. Still, it is a very popular variety whose distribution over the snowdrop collections is still an ongoing process.
The plant is distinguished by an enormously extended flower stem. The longest among all snowdrop species. Therefore, the flowers swing in the softest breeze. An effect which was previously known from Galanthus nivalis 'Magnet'. However, in this regard, the bigger varietey 'Fly Fishing' is clearly superior.
In fly fishing, a long flyline is moved through the air with a special technique, which eventually led to the name of this variety.
The variety was discovered in the famous English nursery of Avon Bulbs.
