A very special snowdrop, which has recently been named for IGPS member, former IGPS Chair (2012-2016) and regular contributor to our newsletter, Paddy Tobin. Galanthus plicatus ‘Patrick Tobin’.
It is a form of Galanthus plicatus which arose naturally as a seedling in the renowned Primrose Hill Gardens and was selected by Robin Hall, who decided to name it after Paddy. Primrose Hill has been the source of several excellent snowdrops, such as ‘Cicely Hall’, ‘Mary O’Brien’ and ‘The Whopper’ among others. Congratulations, Paddy, on joining the snowdrop ‘immortals’!
