Snowdrop

Galanthus nivalis

Description:

Snowdrops are some of the earliest bulbs, and flowers in general, to bloom in spring. Each bulb generally produces two linear, or very narrowly lanceolate, greyish-green leaves and an erect, leafless scape (flowering stalk), which bears at the top a pair of bract-like spathe valves joined by a papery membrane. From between them emerges a solitary, pendulous, bell-shaped white flower, held on a slender pedicel.
