General Discussion

The widely-cultivated Galanthus elwesii Hooker and Galanthus nivalis L. have been reported from our area. However, the handful of reports are ambiguous regarding their cultivated status. Galanthus may eventually be confirmed in our area, but no definitive adventive populations have yet been seen.
