Hello,

Today, I have pictured this new accepted subsp. It has huge corona and in general size.

It is Narcissus bulbocodium subsp. validus Barra,
subsp. nov.
(1-2 pics)

If anyone like description plant I can e-mail you.

After that I have visited Narcissus bulbocodium subsp. graellsii. (3 pic) The weather didn't help me so, excuse the bas quality.

Rafa,

I have been away for a few days and just now catching up on recent postings. Delighted to see you are still posting narcissus in their native habitats, particularly N. b. graelsii as I have it just about coming into flower for the first time here.

Many thanks for the photos. Paddy

I thought you had been quiet, most un-Paddy like! ;D

Sounds like you plan to do it on a large scale Mark?

Mark, might be a good idea to have my 'illicit' daff propagated in that way if you know someone with the necessary expertise.
By the way nothing has arrived yet.

Rafa, talking of illicit stock I find that I have another Daff from the same source which has just flowered and bears the same collection area ie Grazalema Spain. I must try to find who the culprit is and have words.
This one is Narcissus cordubensis. It has a very strong 'perfume' which I didn't find bad but 'her indoors' made me take it out of the conservatory, where I often take plants in flower to photograph. She was not impressed by the smell!!

Next one is another collected Daff from the exchange but from an impeccable source Margaret & Henry Taylor, Narcissus jacetanus. It is very tiny as you can judge by the 7cm pot.

Hello,

Fantastic pics!

Very robust plants John, they look happy.

Today I have searched the fields to find out if the Narcissus bulbocodium ssp bulbocodium and ssp. graellsii grow in the same places and  finally I found a big population.
