Following on from a post   in the "winter Narcissus"  thread - 
Angelo Porcelli posted a  super comparison of tazetta types on Facebook :
http://www.srgc.net/forum/index.php?topic=15924.msg387714#msg38771


Another post from  Angelo Porcelli‎ 
 
Another photo comparison of some late forms of wild Narcissus tazetta I have found in some parts of Southern Italy, with some hybrids for scale.
1. Grand Primo, an old hybrid said to be sterile but actually it sets a seed every one hundred flowers, I am growing a few seedlings from open pollinated seeds.
2. Grand Monarque, one of the famous old tazetta hybrids, seed fertile, which in my opinion is not a true hybrid but rather a choice seedling from some wild form of unknown origin
3. tazetta italicus, just for comparison, the single florets are 50mm across and larger than Grand Primo, but this latter has wider tepals and looks bigger.
4. Avalanche 'wild', I am rather convinced that it's just a selection of a wild form and not true hybrid
5. tazetta 'robust form' I collected many years ago in Lucania/Apulia border, with wide leaves, flats, 6-8 florets per stem, 36mm across
6. tazetta I collected near the town of Laterza in Southern Apulia, wide leaves, flat, stem shorter than form 6 but with 8-10 florets per stem, cup very large, 14mm across and tepals strongly reflexed
7. tazetta from hills between Molise and Northern Apulia, narrow leaves,erect,often twisted inflorescences with 2-4 flowers on average, small cup
8. tazetta from Gargano woods in Apulia, short form with twisted leaves, florets with a bigger and round cup than form 7, an average of 6 florets , rarely up to 8

Hi There,
   I cut some 'Spring Dawn' on the allotment, just before 'The Beast from the East' arrived. Glad I did, because Yorkshire is a winter wonderland this morning.
   This variety always flowers before 'February Gold'... and I prefer its colour/shape/size too!!
        Can anyone else recommend an early outdoor daff?

Jumblie was around a couple of weeks earlier than February Gold for me this year.

Tim,
Narcissus 'Rijnveld's Early Sensation' is probably the earliest of all, at least in this part of the world - sometimes in flower by Christmas, then lasting through January &February. Just now going over. Sorry, don't have a photo of this.

My RES are not out yet (at least I don't think so, too snowy to see). I like the look of Spring Dawn - must find out where I can get some. Plantfinder here I come.

Well, the online Plantfinder is a dead loss nowadays. Google seems to be much more productive.

Spring Dawn is a January flower for me. I get it from my local gardening association so I guess it is readily available. Well over now, even before the snow collapsed it.
