Did you know we have planted over 15,000 snowdrops to brighten up the walkways of the wildlife park!
The botanical name for snowdrop is 'Galanthus' from the Greek word 'Gala' for milk and 'anthos' meaning flower.
The vast majority of our snowdrops are Galanthus nivalis and Galanthus nivalis f. pleniflorus Flore pleno. Galanthus nivalis are the single snowdrops, with a simple single petticoat of petals if you turn the flower upside down. The others in their fancy fullness have double flowers, or many petticoats, as pleniflorus means an abundance!
