Galanthus alpinus var alpinus coll Leonid Bondarenko

£20 for 5 asstd

SOLD OUT

 

Here is a puzzle and a true rarity. Sent to me by a friend some years ago with the following notes:
“Leonid Bondarenko (gardener in Lithuania) collected Galanthus caucasicus (Baker) Grossh. in W. Caucasus (which is synonym of G. alpinus var. alpinus). 
Collected in N. W. Caucasus, Karachaevo-Cherkesia. Corresponded fully to description made for G. caucasicus by A. Grossheim in 1940 year. The leaves is bluish, relatively narrow with a specific form (wider in upper part) grown vertically in the beginning and almost compressed to the soil in full development. Genetically it is one of the form of G. alpinus, but in gardens very outstanding from with the leaves, bulbs and time of flowering. So I save old Grossheim's name.
This is not G. elwesii var. monostictus. Many Russian and Caucasian botanists do not accept that G. caucasicus (Baker) Grossh. and G. alpinus are the same plant.”

G. alpinus is described as having supervolute leaves, which puzzled me as these plants appear to be applanate. I was told that they are supervolute beneath the ground so I had a peek below compost level, and it’s true the do seem to be just supervolute where the leaves emerge from the sheath.
It’s a bit of an enigma!
