Anthony,

N. 'Tarlatan' has a fabulously delicate look about it, tissue-paper thin it would appear.

Here is a nice 'new' bulbocodium type I was given last year.  It has lived up to its name, flowering in December and it has the largest flowers of any of this type that I have seen ... Nice!

Tony, do you think it could be a bulbocodium/romieuxii cross? The stamens have that curved look about them and the stigma is well out. Depending on how true the colour is, both colour and texture look like rom. `Atlas Gold' though taller. It certainly is very attractive. The early flowering could also have come from a romieuxii form. Just a thought. But if so, it opens some interesting possibilities.

Would anybody like a copy of the RHS 'Daffodils with Snowdrops and Tulips' 2006-2006? I was sent an extra copy by mistake. Email me if you would like it.

thanks for the offer Anne but my copy is already paid for and in my grubby little hand.  Perhaps it could be a prize for the 'who used to look like this'.

A few pics of daffs that have cheered my day. Cedric Morris still in flower and looking nice, as is N albidus occidentalis SF16. Camoro now in full flower - oh glory! Can't find much about albidus occidentalis - can anyone enlighten me - I think I got this from Ian Y himself? And to whom does the SF refer?
Cheers

Hi Dave
Look under Narcissus romieuxii  ssp albidus var occidentalis and you may find it.
The nomenclature of that entire section of Narcissus is full of confusion, well it  confuses me, they make a rule then break it for the next species.
The S of the SF stands for Mike Samson SHOULD BE SALMON !! of Narcissus fame.
It is one of my all time favourites and I am always reluctant to part with it so cherish it.

Many thanks Ian. I shall cherish it - its one of my favourites too (as is Camoro). I'm glad you parted with a few bulbs a couple of years ago. Earlier this season N mesatlanticus has also been good, and increasing rapidly; pity it's now all but over. Enjoy the wee dram - cheers!
