The Common Snowdrop (Galanthus nivalis) is a small, white flower that blooms in early spring. It is one of the first flowers to appear after the snow melts, and can often be seen growing in fields and woods. The Common Snowdrop has a long, slender stem and small, oval-shaped leaves. The flower itself is white with a greenish-yellow centre.
Common Snowdrops are found throughout Europe, Asia and North America. In the UK, they can be seen in woods and fields from January to March.
The best time to see Common Snowdrops is in February or March, when they are at their peak bloom.
Common snowdrops were named after earrings not drops of snow.
Snowdrop is perennial plant, which means that it can survive more than two years in the wild.
Snowdrop plants were harvested during the First World War to make anti-freeze for tanks.
