The return of the snowdrop – Galanthus elwesii at Kew

Under the graceful ululations of the Japanese Maple (Acer palmatum Dissectum Atropurpureum) that is a joy of fine foliage, form and startling colour both in Spring and Autumn, something that must surely draw a gasp from every lucky passer by.

Set within the bulky rockery of the Alpine Beds, adjacent to the Salvia Border and entrance to the walled Family Beds (if you are looking for directions), a crowd of snowdrops (Galanthus elwesii), jostling for space and attention. I think, given the photos I managed to accumulate in just a few minutes, that I have done them justice!
