Two of my favourite narcissus.
Narcissus cantabricus ssp cantabricus
Narcissus x Minicycla
Now what will happen if I cross pollinate these two :-\

Arthur, I think your NOT `Atlas Gold' one could reasonably just be called N. romieuxii without much other detail. There are so many variants of this delightful species and every batch of seedlings turns up something different and very nice.

Did anybody ever tried a cross between N. cantabricus and N. cyclamineus?
Perhaps Anne W.?

Here are

1.+ 2.  a cross between Narcissus hedraeanthus white (pollen parent) and a small N. cantabricus. It seems it is fertile, because pollen is built.

3. Narcissus asturiensis
4. a small daffodil received as N. gaditanus but i may be another species

That's a very interesting cross, Gerd. Such a beautiful short trumpet.
I presume the second one has the right colour?

Luit,
The first pic shows some influence of  the artificial light, which is situated over the bench.
The second was made in daylight. The flower is white.

I was sold Narcissus gaditanus last year but it turned out to be rupicola. :'( Here is another form of hedraeanthus. Now thought to be a hybrid with hedraeanthus.

The seeds were collected as N. gaditanus near Ejulve, northwest from Teruel. This indeed is far away from the places in Andalucia, from where this species is known.
In my head there is another name, something like ' N. assoanus praelongus ' - but couldn't find the reference.
Did you tell me something like this?

Anthony,
My God, what a beauty! Why did I struggle and hybridize N. cantabricus and N. hedraeanthus when forms like yours are already in cultivation?
May I ask you for the source of the plant shown?

Gerd, I bought the hedraeanthus from Bob Brown at Cotswold Garden Flowers.
