    I realize, Finch, that they aren't actually called 'snow bells', but that's the common name...
    No its not.

    Thats may be what they call them where your from, but snowdrop is the accepted common name. Its not a scientific name. Google snowbell- very few references for Galanthus nivalis are up there

    google image serch reveals the same thing

    compare that to snowdrop, and youl understand what i mean
    that makes no logic

    Whoo boy! I remember how our bio teacher preached to us never to use common names for this very reason. That's partly why I get soo peeved when I see "HELP! My pitcherplant is turning red!"


    Now we know that a snowbell is auctually a cat, and one cultivar being a horse. 2 varieties seem to be a rabbit and a dog, aswell.

    Yeah it seems everyone in New York has 'em
    Everyone in NY except for me. I have a bunch of wild crocuses, though, just pointing their sprouts up. Naturally, we're getting a snow dumping today.
