Mid winter is when the hoop petticoat daffs really come into their own.
Here are two of Lawrence Trevanion's hybrids:
1 & 2) Untschen
3 & 4) Quen Dor

Jamus ( "Jupiter")   has posted  pix of a Rod Barwick narcissus on FB -  it's  'Ben'Bler '  - one of the pix copied below - I thought  fermi  would know  the story of this one's  name  - and he does !

Glenbrook have a lot of strange and fun names! The detective series include Spoirot (herculeS POIROT), Smarple (misS MARPLE), Kholmes (sherlocK HOLMES) and I presume "Ianmon" is in this series! A private correspondent has told me today that another GBF hybrid "Ben Bler" is from BENson and staBLER, TV detectives in SVU!

A couple of pics of a couple of white hoops.
The single bloom is 'Nug Nutsch' another of Lawrence Trevanion's and the other is similar but unlabelled

Lawrence has a "baby talk" series and says these are named after noises made by his kids when very young!
Others include 'Gefk', 'Quen Dor' and Imersh'

Hi Anne,
Sadly I know some daffodil breeders who wouldn't even consider growing anything dwarf or miniature :-X
it's interested people like yourself who have taken on the breeding of new mini-daffs who are keeping attention focussed on them.
Breeders like yourself, Barwick, Trevanion and Fleming are following those famed growers of the past such as Gray and Blanchard.
Keep up the good work!
cheers

Another one of Lawrence Trevanion's "green hybrids" - 'Virivest' ( 'Westholme x N. viridiflorus) opens 7GG and fades to 7WG

Hi Kelly,
glad you like them - I do as well! Have a look at Lawrence's site for others: http://www.trevaniondaffodils.com.au/
Now one from Graham Fleming at Keira Bulbs, a cross between Narcissus cordubensis and N. cyclamineus.
He is going to name it after David Adams but I see that name has already been used for another daff
cheers
