A floriferous Narcissus ‘Craigton Clumper’ and one of my seedlings from N. romieuxii ‘Julia Jane’ × N.初雪 (Hatsuyuki)’
What a remarkable seedling! Is it a chimera? I wonder if it is stable - is it the first time it has flowered? Questions, questions....

Another seedling selected from Narcissus romieuxii ‘Julia Jane’ × N.初雪 (Hatsuyuki)’ and its parents - JJ and 初雪(Hatsuyuki).

You are getting some wonderful things from that cross. I crossed Shiraume with Tethys and am awaiting results  :)

Thanks, Anne!
Yes, I think its is a sectorial chimera. The sectorial chimera is unstable as you know...
And yes again, the seedling bloomed the chimera flower first time. The plant showed first flower in 2019 and put plain pale cream flowers since then.

Wonderful little clumps! Do you have slugs or snails? They would eat all the flowers if I planted out into the garden.

Narcissus Minicycla has a lot to answer for! It was not being able to buy this little daffodil that made me start hybridising way back in 1988. In true Yorkshire fashion, if I couldn't buy it, I would make it myself! My very first attempt at hybridising is still with me - seedling number 330, 34 years old and looking great.

Some more recent varieties -
Angelina is very early to flower, competing with Little Finn.
I think I may have overdone things a little with Pallene - the flower is HUGE!

The species are not forgotten - the first photo is a selected clone from seed ex 'tananicus' which I don't think is a valid name. Lovely anyway.
Narcissus bulbocodium graellsii - single clone
Narcissus romieuxii FS 26/1 in its best flowering ever.
Narcissus zaianicus lutescens x cantabricus
The wonderful 'organ pipes' of N. romieuxii rifanus

A couple of varieties from Brian Duncan - Punk at only 10cm high, a really cute little daffodil.
Galantoquilla is the one Brian calls his 'snowdrop daffodil' - similar habit and size and flowering time to snowdrops.

Narcissus cantabricus petunioides – possibly my favourite form of N. cantabricus.

Very nice selection! Especially the distinctive flowers of the rifanus variety are great!

They are all appealing, Anne!
1988, the year you started the career as a daffodil breeder, reminds me Kylie Minogue - I Should Be So Lucky.

Narcissus ‘Tethys’
A generous friend of mine sent me the bulbs in 2017 ;)
