Lesley you could well be right about December Gold - As I beleieve it arose in cultivation there is a strong possibility of it being a hybrid.

Mike Salmon of Narcissus fame may be a big strong chap but I beleive he is very happily settled with Delilah and Monocot Nursery has apparently not - see below (or above if like me you have the most recent post displayed first!) shut up shop :(

Yes, Salmon, not Samson, sorry about that! IY

Here's another from the same stable then - Narcissus albidus SF110, (which incidentally does't look like the one in the RHS 'Daffodils with Snowdrops and Tulips', which looks like yours above!), next to the tiny N. cantabricus tananicus, with cheeky upturned flowers only about 11 or 12mm across.

   I would like to present my narcissus too it looks quite different from here. I have seen it fortuitous
when I was looking around for some crocus. it should be narcissus serotinus.


    best regards..

It is peak flowering time here for the winter flowering narcissus in Section Bulbocodium.  They are flowering brilliantly this year .. must be something to do with following the BD's regime :)  I think the long cool spring in 2006 helped too, the plants stayed in growth longer than usual.  Only pity is that grown close together they are a little drawn and the dull mild weather of late has not helped :(
N albidus occidentalis - distinctive long corona and very narrow petals behind.
N albidus SF110 - one of the best and very vigorous here
ex N albidus SF110 - offspring almost always as good although there is bound to be some hybrid blood given that I grow so many in close proximity.

Next batch.
N romieuxii Hat - A Kath Dryden selection, quite short stemmed.
N Atlas Gold - very good golden colour.  Not vigorous here.  Does it do better for you?
N bulbocodium genuinus - another slow to bulk up.
N bulbocodium mesatlanticus - originally form Washfield Nursery this form bulks up well.  Really elegant and a good yellow.

And finally.
N Joy Bishop - a lovely scalloped form, quite small and a bit weak here.
N romieuxii hybrid, Roll Rim seedling - one I seperated out, slowly making up a potful.
N Roll Rim Escapee - an even better one which has 'appeared' in my covered bulb bed!
N cantaricus 'laciniatus' - A Mike Salmon plant raised from his seed.  Vigorous and a good pure white but a bit tall.  Not as elegant as the really dwarf forms of N cantabricus.

Enjoying these pix, Tony. What a pity that some of these more desirable varieties such as the N. cantabricus laciniatus ( and what a stunning potfull you show) do not lend themselves to the treatment of the commercial bulb growers in Holland so that they could be more available in the trade to everyone. Well, not, everyone, I apologise to those folks in Australia, New Zealand  etc, I realise you couldn't get them even if the Dutch growers could crack them. I suppose we must just be grateful that there are some forms available in the trade.
