Ray gave me a pot of December Gold in flower last week,it is very nice and seems to multiply well.

I suppose this fits my theory - one to spare is one to share

Thanks Anne - so many helpful folk out there, good job they're not all lazy so-and-sos like me!

My December Gold came from the same source via a mutual friend, looks like it will soon be more widely grown.

I see from the Daff register page that December Gold was first flowered in 1982 though only registered last year, so it seems Mr Cobb has been cautious about seeing if this was a good doer before registering it.  If he has let some of it go before naming, of course, that'll be a another pickle for folks to get into! Who'd be a parent?? :P

I've got Narcissus zaianicus lutescens x catabricus flowering right now - a bit drawn to the light though - it's been so damn dull over the past few weeks - fortunately we had some sun today at last  :D

That's a lovely hybrid, Luc. Did you make the cross yourself?

Thanks Anne, but no I didn't do the cross myself - I got one bulb from a good friend some years ago, and it multiplied nicely...  ;)

Yes Maggi,
that's the way it should mostly go. If a gardener makes a new hybrid or selection, he should take time to
make observations, if this plant is really a good gardenplant!
I believe, that you and I know that nowadays there are too many people, who want to give plants a name when they see some deviation in leaf or flowercolor.
And I think the trade is also in debt with this, because they are always looking for "new" plants in their catalogues.

Wonderful, Rafa.
How complex the shapings are when we see theflowers in close up.
I love the green lines on the reverse of  Narcissus bulbocodium subsp. bulbocodium var. graellsii ... in captivity these are never so early to flower.
