A bulbous European plant which bears drooping white flowers during the late winter.
- Galanthus nivalis, family Liliaceae (or Amaryllidaceae).
- Daffodils, wild hyacinths and tulips, snowdrops, bluebells, daisies and buttercups littered the earth.
- It tolerates a lot of shade and is beautiful when planted together with Winter aconite and snowdrops.
- We may see fewer daffodils, bluebells, snowdrops and crocuses, because they like winter cold; and tulips, irises and cyclamens, because they will suffer from winter wet.
