What a little charmer.... and the narcissus isn't bad, either.

What did I say about Chinese people and stamp collectors? Actually Maggi, I appreciate the intentions. ;)

I think it is sad that it is so hard to find suppliers of many of these winter flowering Narcissus.... I think one reason is the fact that there are no really early flower shows ( in th UK, for instance) where a wider range of people can see these delightful plants.... as we see here, when people are 'introduced' to them, they are very popular but because they are really not very well known, there is not the demand so there is little supply.

This was sold as 'Atlas Gold' at our group 2004 Bulb Sale.  Clearly it is not - any suggestions as I like it a lot

Can someone please identify this narcissus - my label says tenufolius, and is obviously wrong

Ashley

If it is then I am very happy as I have never flowered it before.  Can confirm when I repot as bulbs quite distinctive.
