Narcissus 2015

A new year and more flowers on a surprise bulb!  Narcissus romieuxii (or a hybrid of it) came as seeds in a trough from the 2010 NARGS winter study weekend in Portland.  The soil was used planting mix from Jane McGary.  Last year there was one flower; this year there are four with one more to open.  This is a good doer.

Hi Mark,

Taztep isn't quite a dwarf, but it's not as large as some of the other Tazettas.


you have my sympathy, I think we have the lesser Narcissus fly here but I'm hoping that the larger one hasn't made it to Australia yet!

Here are some pics from a week or so ago:

'Rapture' (6YY), a good garden daffodil and still winning prizes on the show bench

Narcissus 'Cloth of Gold', a multi-headed type than has clumped up nicely - must remember to divide it soon!
