Here is your N cantabricus petunioides looking beautiful here just now, Tatsuo.
Wow :o Your petunioides seems comfortable, Anne 8)
Continuing from last season, mine is unlikely to flower this season too :(

Some seedlings flowering now, unnamed so far:
They are very cute :D Especially the bi-coloured one :P

Narcissus papyraceus, JJA 702.720, “almost certainly originating in Morocco”
Its flower stalk is shorter than leaves.

Narcissus papyraceus MS.427, Spain, Antequera.
In contrast with its African relative in my previous post, its flower stalk is taller than leaves.

striking difference, both are wonderful. Why your plants are much more compact than those grown in europe, is it light angle?

Thanks, Yann. Yes, the light angle is one of the reason, I think. The main reason is probably winter weather. Here is the mid-latitude east coast climate.  From late Autumn to early Spring, we have sunnier and drier days here far more than the UK and Europe.

I choose Tokyo as a sample point for day length compared to me.

Tokyo: https://www.gaisma.com/en/location/tokyo.html

New Jersey: https://www.gaisma.com/en/location/fort-lee-new-jersey.html.

You can compare the "insolation" numbers for different parts of the world to see why Tatsuo's plants are more compact.
