Narcissus marrieri
« on: September 30, 2015, 02:25:46 PM »
Bought a bulb from the Wallis's at the Rainham Show, labelled Narcissus marrieri. Can't find any references in literature or on the Interweb. Does anyone know anything about this species, if it is indeed a valid species?

Might it be a mis-written   N. marvieri?

That's probably it. The r and the v look identical! Thank you Miss Marple!

Lucky you for managing to get hold of N. marvieri, Ralph! It's a lovely plant but not offered too often.
