Snowdrops (Galanthus elwesii) Blooming in Late February in New Jersey (Zone 6b)

Is February over yet? Only three days left until March when the garden really starts coming back to life. Now that the snow has melted from the beds, you can see the snowdrops blooming in earnest.

I found that the Galanthus elwesii that I planted last fall bloomed much earlier than nivalis. Do you know if that is just a first year fluke, or is that typical?

I've had trouble getting this post through...so trying again. I'm glad to meet another NJ gardener and I'm adding myself to your Followers' list. I'm in Hunterdon Cty, so not too far from you. I've enjoyed reading your posts and photos so just wanted to say thanks!

Marta,

Yes, those are Galanthus elwesii and they always bloom before nivalis.
