Galanthus 'Cordelia'

Galanthus ‘Cordelia’ I cheated a bit by including this one, because I am only 90% certain this is the correct name, as part of the label (taken on a separate photo) was obscured. But it was so intriguing I wanted to include it. This is a Greatorex double. According to this website, Heyrick Greatorex “used pollen from nivalis flore pleno and crossed it with Galanthus plicatus to produce a range of hybrid doubles. The resulting plants were tall, vigorous and robust and with their large, regular and neat flowers caused something of a sensation.” He named them all after female characters in Shakespeare.
