Galanthus elwesii var. monostictus is from southern Turkey and is characterised by a large, well formed single spot. It flowers February to May in nature, October to March in the garden.

Galanthus elwesii is one of the three major groups of Galanthus in cultivation, primarily identified by its size (it grows up to 30cm tall), its broad glaucus leaves, and characteristically large green marking.
