Galanthus nivalis cultivars and Fibonacci sequence


Each spring  snowdrops are among the first announcing the winter is gone. Abundance of these little flowers paints whole white carpets under trees .What a view! 

But there is much more diversity  in these uniformly white galaxy as one could assume at a first glimpse.These white flowers may change shape,their pattern is far from uniform,mutations provide new shapes.But the sad truth is all these variants are mostly not stable in nature.So it actually is a hard work to cultivate a Galanthus nivalis cultivar of even a slight difference.And the good news? Once stable form will propagate with bulbs-by means of Fibonacci sequence which means:0,1,1,2,3,5,8,13,21,34,55,89 etc!
