Description: Nodding white flowers with yellow centres open in late spring, this plant getting its common name from the way the flower buds emerge on bent stems, so they hang like snowdrops. They then straighten up and face outwards as the perfumed flowers start to open, petals catching the breeze, making them look like butterflies.
Height: 24 cm.
Hardy in: zones 5-8 (-15 C)
Sowing instructions: Sow from Feb to Jul just covering the seed with compost. Use good moist peat or coir based seed compost. Seal inside a polythene bag, keep at 13-18C for 1 week, then place in a refrigerator, at 3-5C. Inspect regularly while in the fridge and remove immediately if they start togerminate. After 6 weeks return to warmth. Germination usually takes 6 weeks to 3 months after this. Alternatively, sow in autumn and put outside.
Planting instructions: Soil must not be too wet. Sun or partial shade.
