Noble and white,such an apt name....Yours is earlier and bigger than the one here...it's very delicate looking but of course it is very hardy.

Never seen one of these before, I do like it though.

Yes Anget, the word "Edelweiss" brings out the song immediately.

Julia, I remember seeing yours and Hywel's on this site.
It is cold hardy but I had mine in the greenhouse over winter. I was worried that it would not survive our rains.

Cariad18, I was searching for this plant for several years and could not get it and suddenly this variety ( Blossom of Snow) is available in several places. Apparently grown for florist to produce large flowers on long stems that would be ideal for flower arrangements.

That must of been frustrating for you, I’m glad you managed to get your hands on one though a lovely edition for your collection :)

A pretty addition to the garden, Klahanie. Yes, it evokes not just the film, but school shows also, memories of singing and playing instruments! I’m good at neither!

Seen these in the Alps at 2000m elevation.

Appreciate your comments Cariad, Kate, Siris and Sheila.
We could have a nice choir here.
