And a nice small species with typical upright flowers. Unfortunately not extremely hardy, so placed in a cold greenhouse.

Beautiful, Luc.

I've not seen the upward facing pure white before?  By the subspecies declaration I am assuming it is naturally occurring..... very nice!!

Thanks for showing us. 8)

Cheers.

The name of this Spanish plant could also be N. cantabricus ssp. cantabricus var. eualbidus

Luc,

So it is a variety of cantabricus rather than a naturally occurring ssp then?  So very different to have such upward facing flowers like that, which is why I ask.  I know a lot are well above horizontal, but that is almost celestial viewing. ;D

Cheers.

Well Paul,
This one is looking up at the stars every year, or it wants to look taller.

Chucking it down with rain here today and I've got time on my hands sooooo thought I might post some pics of Narcissus particularly for you folks who have snow up to their chins. Apologies to SRGC Forumists who will have seen them before.

The first two are of Narcissus x susannae (N cantabricus ssp. monopyllus x N triandrus ssp. pallidulus) sometimes also described as x litigiosus.

Followed by a three of N. 'Antiquera' which is really N. cantabricus ssp. cantabricus.

Some more:-

Two versions I have that are alleged to be Narcissus asturiensis from two different nurseries but both lack the typical constricted corona. The best suggestion have is that both could either be hybrids with some asturiensis "blood", or N. minor or N. nanus. One pic of version 1 and two of version 2.

Followed by three pics of N. 'Mitimoto'. Raised in Australia by Glenbrook (N. Nylon Group x N. bulbocodium var. conspicuus. Becoming avaiable now in the UK.
