Galanthus Godfrey Owen is named as such because this was found in the garden of his widow Margaret. It has 6 outer petals, double the normal count. Snowdrops are best grown in semi or shady areas and will grown in most soils. They mix very well with winter aconites and chionodoxa. Lift and divide when the clump becomes thick - this is best done when flowering is over and just after the foliage has died back.
