Narcissus cantabricus var. petunioides x N. romieuxii
One of the best seedlings, bred by me :)
Leaves got a bid of damages by unusually cold and very dry winds.

Narcissus cantabricus and Narcissus blancoi, arround it, with possible hybrids. The other is Narcissus x tuckeri, a natural hybrid between N. blancoi and N. fernandesii, very scented, like N. fernandesii

All very beautiful - the x tuckeri is a fantastic form.

I still have the varieties I obtained from you, Anne. Plus the occasional purchase from elsewhere. I have never really considered saving the seed and now concede I have been missing a trick. Not only are these narcissus astonishingly beautiful (and collectable) the quality of the photography is very high.

Anne, Narcissus 'Andy Blanchard' is perfect this year, it doesn't increase quickly but what a gem!
