If I could only grow one snowdrop it would be ‘Sam Arnott’ – while most are just showing colour, Sam is in full flower, tall and elegant and when/if the sun shines, delightfully fragrant. I was lucky enough to visit Colesbourne Park (famed for their snowdrops) a few years ago and was bowled over by a large drift of Sam Arnott that was a fragrant as it was beautiful. The keen eyed might notice that a bumble bee has found this modest cluster of flowers.
