Narcissus reading material ?
« on: March 19, 2018, 06:49:43 PM »
Can anyone recommend any books for a new Narcissus admirer ?

Something that covers the basics / species / heritage and older classics ?

Hi Deee,
in terms of miniatures, I still think one of the best books is "Modern Miniature Daffodils: Species and Hybrids" by James s. Wells (1989).
Also still worth getting is "Narcissus: A guide to Wild Daffodils" by John W. Blanchard (1990).
However we are waiting for a re-vamp or updating on these (looking hopefully at Anne Wright, Matt Topsfield :-* ).
The Narcissus pages on the Forum here have lots of info and should be studied assiduously by anyone interested in daffodils,
cheers
