Description
 
An uncommon white flowered form of of our native Grass Widow.  Like all of our Olsynium selections, this has been a long process of a decade or so to get this to a size where division is possible and we feel like we can safely release a few.  Early flowering in Feb-Mar and fully dormant by summer.  Myriad variants can be found in flower shape, color, size, time of bloom etc. and it would be easy to go Galanthus on this species in terms of collecting mania.  We speak from first-hand experience on our Olsynium descent into madness. Multiple shoots which may or may not flower as it is hard to tell when dormant.  This is a winter-spring moist plant which goes dry in summer in the wild where it grows in fairly heavy soil.
