We have both the large and small narcissus fly here. The galanthus seem to tolerate their depredations. Any amaryllis is doomed almost immediately. Boo and hiss!
Bellevue, Washington Zone 7-8
not very successful in growing the beautiful narcissus in my zone.
here are some pictures taken yesterday from my garden
one of the sunniest cities in Canada.
Temperature range +30C to -38C.

Garden colors are really heating up, along with the weather.

St Louis, Mo

Yum. Phyteuma are a favorite of mine. The only problem I have with them is when a wild rabbit nips the flowers off! Liquid Fence works wonders if I remember to apply it.
Also currently blooming 2 versions of nectaroscordum.
First is N tripedale
Second is N siculum bulgaricum
(Edited to reverse the order - I initially posted them backwards!)
Some offerings from our garden in the fall/winter
Oxalis hirta seedlings
White "Hoop Petticoat" Daffodils
