Galanthus elwesii var. monostictus ‘Miller’s Late’
This snowdrop blooms reliably at the very end of the season, sometimes even blooming in April. It comes from the garden of the now deceased, famous snowdrop collector Primrose Warburg. The variety has noticeably long outer petals and a characteristic, strongly curved smathe. It bends over the flower and often touches the ovary.
Galanthus 'Miller's Late' needs a cooler place in the garden, shaded by shrubs or trees. At the time of flowering of this late variety, the sun's rays are more intense than at the beginning of the season, which would result in a shortened flowering period if the shading is insufficient.
