Description

A lovely and very early spring flower, white-petals with stems a purple-crimson tone, changing to green at the flowerhead's base. Grows up to 20cm in height. 

Cultivation

Sadly very selective as to where it spreads here, but making headway each year, usually in undisturbed soil beneath trees and shrubs.
