Sometimes there is also the spelling 'Oh jeh', which is due to the fact that there are several spellings for this interjection in German: "Oje!", "Oh je!" and "O jeh!" The meaning is the same as "Oh dear!" in English.
"O jeh", however, is the correct spelling used by the Finder.
Among all the varieties that have already emerged from this group, this is one of the greenest.
Galanthus 'O jeh' was named by the German snowdrop enthusiast Rudi Bauer and originally comes from the Ardennes, home to many types of scharlockii's, which are commercially available these days. Rudi Bauer is known for his high-quality selections of scharlockii's.
