Hippolyta is a superb double variety, named for the Amazonian Queen whose father was Aries the Greek God of War. This snowdrop has attractive deep green double flowered inner petals. 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.
