Nine populations of four Galanthus taxa from Greece, G. elwesii Hooker subsp. elwesii, G. elwesii Hooker subsp. minor D.A. Webb, G. nivalis L. subsp. nivalis, and G. nivalis L. subsp. reginae-olgae (Orph.) Gottl.-Tann., have been studied in cultivation. Karyotype analysis has been carried out in the first three taxa, and structural heterozygosity found in two populations of G. elwesii subsp. elwesii. New localities for G. elwesii are presented; G. elwesii subsp. elwesii is new to Greece. Mt. Athos is the only locality in Greece where G. nivalis subsp. nivalis is found. G. cilicicus Baker from Anatolia seems to be identical cytologically as well as morphologically with Mt. Athos material. The variation pattern in morphology of each taxon is described.
