Galanthus 'Joe's Poculiformis'

Galanthus ‘Joe’s Poculiformis’ According to John Grimshaw, poculiform snowdrops have no inner petals. The inner petals have become an additional three outer petals; ideally, they are all the same length. I could find no other information on this, but I speculate that “Joe” is Joe Sharman of Monksilver Nursery in Cambridge, England.

If winter is slumber and spring is birth, and summer is life, then autumn rounds out to be reflection. It’s a time of year when the leaves are down and the harvest is in and the perennials are gone. Mother Earth just closed up the drapes on another year and it’s time to reflect on what’s come before.
