(Original Snowdrop) - These can tolerate more sun and tend to do better in Austalia than nivalis, which is the most common snowdrop found in Europe. Elwesii has bigger flowers than nivalis and grow to approximately 15-20cm. In Australia, it is recommended to grow these in a partially shaded position in the garden. Snowdrops should be left in the ground in a well-drained soil. Good to naturalise.
