The double white narcissus you mention is probably the double form of Narcissus poeticus.  It was common around here (north-east Scotland) in my youth (which was awhile ago) in cottage gardens.  It flowers very late here May, possibly in to June.  It is later than the single form.

A belated welcome to the Forum Roma. And thank you for the note abut the double N. poeticus. It sounds just right. So now all I have to do is find it somewhere.

Hi Lesley,
is this the one you're thinking of?

If so it is available in Australia so you should be able to get it into NZ; have you asked Marcus if he has it?
