Vorige Art/previous species (Left arrowball from Animation City 1991)     Galanthus nivalis  L.     Nächste Art/next species (Right arrowball from Animation City 1991)
 

Fam.: Amaryllidaceae / Amaryllis Fam.      

Genus:  Galanthus  L.
 

Authors:
   L.:  Carl von Linné (Linnaeus, 1707 - 1777), Swedish naturalist who introduced the binary naming system for plants and animals
 

Etymology:
   Galanthus:   gala = milk, anthos = blossom
   nivalis:   snow
 

Although the plant was originally existing in Germany, and there are still original sites e.g. in valleys of the Schwäbische Alb, most plants which can be found in nature today escaped from gardens. Our original Snowdrop is a single growing plant and belongs to another clan than the garden plants which grow in clusters and seem to originate from an alpine clan.
