Thank you Maggi, tomorrow I will visit a place with about 8 Narcissus species. There is a moment about mid march they are in bloom at the same time not far between each others.

But at this moment just N. cantabricus will be in bloom, I hope to pictured var. petunioides in the wild!!

Great photos, everybody! :D I've been away for a couple of days and all these posts happen! Anthony I love your hedreanthus - how tall is it, and could you spare a seed or two?
I find it difficult to cross hoop petticoat types with trumpet types, but do occasionally succeed - will definitely try that cross this season.

Narcissus minor Douglas Bank edit name. M..... OOPS! Douglasbank
Narcissus cyclamineus
Narcissus Inca, ? I bought this from the MBC as Inca but I don't think that it is correct.

Narcissus minor Douglas Bank edit name. M

Nice pictures Michael.

Maggi did edit the name, but I saw at Daff Seek the name Douglasbank.
Probably the Scots will know best, but there is a good description on Daff Seek.
How would Mr Buchanan have called it really? He's a Scot too I presume?

Luit, Michael, my apologies! 'Douglasbank' is the correct name.... it was the name of Mr Buchanan's home, if I remember that correctly!!

This is my first post to this group, although Iíve been lurking and enjoying since last August. The little daffs are beginning to bloom here in Maryland, USA,  in my cold frame. Attached are pictures of two: Narcissus albidus var. foliosus and N. pachybolbus (or if you prefer, Narcissus tazetta ssp. pachybolbus).  
There are lots of other white-flowered hoop petticoats in the frame, and Iím ashamed to say that so far I have not learned to tell many of them apart very well. Luckily I like them all. I won't pretend for a minute that I really understand the naming conventions in this group - please feel free to make suggestions if you think I have used the wrong names.
The modern Israeli Narcissus tazetta cultivar 'Ziva' is also blooming in the same frame. It is a huge improvement in size and number of flowers over the paper whites I remember from my youth. And this plant growing in the frame is much better than any I have ever seen forced in the house.

Welcome to the Forum Jim. What a great start with Narcissus pachybolbos. Mine looks like it will have no flowers this year. :-\

Hello, Jim, great to have you posting.

 I've had enough of these teasing photos  ;)... I am going to speak to Fred Admin.... we MUST have a scent facility enabled on this Forum....I NEED it!   It  distresses me to see these great photos of scented gems that make me drool to think of the perfume I'm missing..... ::)

At last I have a little time to post some of my own! The first two are outside - 'Sidora' and N. bulbocodium tenuifolius(?) in troughs.
Then two from Keira in Australia, a numbered hybrid, and 'Papa Snoz'. Lastly N. hedreanthus x asturiensis, all seedlings being very similar to each other.
