Hippolyta Double Snowdrop

Hippolyta Double Snowdrop

For a unique take on a classic shade lover, we suggest checking out Hippolyta. This award-winning snowdrop can't be beat for early-season beauty and imparting a light, bright look to darkened areas of the landscape. It boasts fully double flowers of spring green and snowy white that are delightfully charming grown in dappled borders, decorative pots, rock gardens and woodland areas. Its velvety petals and well-shaped form make it the ideal foil for more rustic sites. Plus, Hippolyta's well shaped blooms are an improvement over the traditional 'flore pleno' variety. It has quickly become a favorite of our garden pros, both in the U.S. and Holland. Bulb size: 6+ cm.
