Narcissus
« on: May 13, 2011, 01:20:06 PM »
I'm looking for seed on any Mediterranean narcissi, especially Narcissus watieri or N.cantabricus petuniodes. Also the sea daffodil Pancratium maritimum and Cyclamen spp.

Any sea daffodil you come across in New Zealand is likely to be Chlidanthus fragrans.

............or perhaps Pancratium illyricum? ;) I would certainly be interest in Chlidanthus fragrans if I could find it.

Anthony, Pancratium seeds are available at www.rareplants.de and I bought seeds of P. maritimum from Kurt Vickery a few months ago. Rafa might have seeds from wild Narcissus species from Spain.

Good luck,

Anthony, I can send you these species. I can't select any f. petunioides in my collection, the whole population is mixed so maybe you will find a range of different corona forms.
