Galanthus "Lapwing"

One of this year's new snowdrops in my garden, I was initially disappointed with Lapwing but actually changed my mind when it opened out in today's warm weather and suddenly the green X was revealed. It stands out against the white, arching petals of this middling sized flower. As with many snowdrops that depend on the inner mark it is best viewed from as near a horizontal position as possible. I'll place it in a tall planter when it has increased in number. I'm told it clumps up well.
