'Joy Cozens'

Galanthus elwesii 'Joy Cozens'

Galanthus elwesii 'Joy Cozens' is one of the very few snowdrops, which has an orange touch of coloration of the white flower parts. This is very pronounced when the plant is in bud or when the flowers have not fully opened. The color gradually fades towards the end  of blooming and the petals become lighter.
The variety was found as the first "orange" snowdrop in 1997 under a conifers hedge in the garden of Mary Stroods in Gloucester, Gloucestershire, England and named after a colleague.
The variety is still very rare and achieves high prices. In 2015, 182 GBP were paid on eBay.
