On this side of the world it's autumn but we have narcissus in flower!

Narcissus 'First Stanza' a hybrid raised by Lawrence Trevanion in Canberra by crossing N. elegans fallax x N. 'Soleil d'Or'

Narcissus 'First StanzaNarcissus 'First StanzaNarcissus 'First Stanza

Another of his hybrids N '07-02 T' from Narcissus tazetta lacticolor x N. elegans, a good one for the rock garden as it is quite small. The cups are intially an olive color and develop into orange after a day or so,

A little tazetta grown from seed sent by Betty Clark in New Zealand as "N. tazetta patulus (or ochroleucus)", sadly the molluscs found it before I did!

Lovely, Fermi.  I'd love to be able to grow narcissus -- they don't mind my climate -- but the bulb fly is too persistent.  Thanks for sharing.

Claire,

I know your pain - we have the lesser narcissus fly which can be responsible for the disappearance of some bulbs each year!frown

Another susceptible genus is of course galanthus, but this tiny Galanthus peshmenii has escaped so far!
