Wow, that's one fine flat of them (it looks to me like they're growing in a flat, let me know if I'm wrong).  What a fine sight, and just look at all those buds coming along too!

Keep up the excellent slug patrol  ;)

From the Southern Hemisphere a couple of autumn flowerers:
Narcissus obsoletus (syn N. serotinus)
Narcissus viridiflorus
Unfortunately the first finished a week or so before the second started to flower so I couldn't recreate the hybrid N x alleniae :(
cheers

Good stuff Fermi. I should mention on behalf of many NARGS Forumists, there are indeed fall-blooming Narcissus, I'm sure most North Americans will be unaware, as I was until recently.  I never realized the existance of fall-blooming Narcissus until I frequented the pages of Scottish Rock Garden Club Forum (SRGC).  The first you show, I've seen under the name N. serotinus, a charming little thing.  The one named viridiflorus is, just... well... sort of weird (although, weird can be good, I like many such unusual plants). I'm surprised with many of the taxonomic upheavals these days, that species like Narcissus viridiflorus hasn't been split off into a separate genus.  Very cool plant, all the same.  Is there a fragrance to either of these two species?

I still call mine N. serotinus but then narcissus are as prone to the manic efforts of the splitters as many other genus are. The autumn flowering ones are very difficult to flower in my climate not enough heat in summer to ripen them.Seen in the wild in a good year when they are in thousands they are very nice,on the whole in a pot not very spectacular,although I persevere endlessly.

Here are a few of my spring ones
Narcissus bulbocodium
Narcissus bulbocodium var citrinus
narcissus cantabricas ssp monophyllus
Narcissus cantabricus ssp petuniodes
narcissus wateri
narcissus alpestris

Mark,  Narcissus viridiflorus is pretty stinky- not one you want to be sinking your nose into..... :P

Maggi, I'm sensing deja vu, I think I asked this same question on SRGC before, where I first learned about autumn blooming narcissus.

Tony, I'm particularly fond of the open chalice-shaped blooms of N. cantabricas ssp monophyllus, but have long admired (and lusted after) the flatter-face bloom of N. cantabricus ssp petuniodes.  What a sweet little thing N. alpestris is, so cute with the nodding blooms. After poor long-term results with a few dwarf narcissus grown outdoors, I've never taken the plunge, but I really must introduce a few that will behave more permanently.
