Narcissus 2011

The little Narcissus providing a blaze of colour in the greenhouse at the moment.

Narcissus romieuxii ex JCA 805 'Julia Jane'. Not the real 'Julia Jane' I'm told so I have inserted 'ex' on my label. The original JJ was selected and named by the late, and much missed, Jim Archibald from a batch of seed collected in Morocco in 1963 and I can't be sure that my bulbs were vegetatively produced. Still look nice though.

Narcissus bulbocodium var. genuinus.

A cross made by the Northern Irish Daff specialist Brian Duncan-Narcissus bulbocodium Moroccan Form x bulbocodium nivalis.

Narcissus cantabricus var. foliosus.

My lone little pot of N. cantabricius foliosus bloomed last year in the greenhouse, but the buds seem to be blasting this year.  Maybe I left it outside too late into the season this time.

Nice to see all of you from "over there".  Thanks for droppin' in and brightening our winter days!

Wim, is that Narcissus supposed to be nearly stemless, or do you suspect it is just with the maiden flower?

Rick,

that species is supposed to stay so small. it's divided in two subsp. This is the key to the two subsp. of N. hedraeanthus in the Flora Iberica:

N. hedraeanthus
1) Flowers sessile, pedicels rarely up to 0.6 mm, 'perianth tube' (10.2) 12.1 - 16,6 (18,9) mm ......................................... a. subsp. hedraeanthus
2) Flowers semi-sessile, pedicels (0.9) 1.3-2.6 (2.9) mm, 'perianth tube' (16.6) 17.8 - 20.8 (24.8) mm .............................. b. subsp. luteolentus

two days ago I discovered there's a type of N. hedraeanthus which grows "a lot" heigher. You can see here: http://www.srgc.org.uk/smf/index.php?topic=6400.msg184828#msg184828

A dwarf narcissus flowering in the rockgarden now (without winter protection or annual summer lifting to give it a dry summer rest):

I am so depressed with all the snow in my garden...it will be months before I see any narcissus.  These are beauties!  Thanks for sharing.
