Hi Kelly,
glad you like them - I do as well! Have a look at Lawrence's site for others: http://www.trevaniondaffodils.com.au/

Truly gorgeous! Do you grow the “green hybrids” under cover? I’m guessing your garden is a little warmer than mine in winter — mine is too cold to grow paperwhites outdoors.

I haven’t seen them available in the US, but will have to look harder!

Kelly,

Not to pre-empt Fermi but Rod Barwick down here in Tassie doesn't grow his own viridiflorus hybrids under cover. He's pointed them out to me in the paddock, along with various 'hoops'. In the past he's made quite trenchant comments about those who grow his small daffs in pots.

Hi Kelly,
As Rob has said I grow these outdoors - Narcissus broussonetti is the only one that needs winter protection here. I'm sure that the green hybrids are grown in the USA - have a look at the American Daffodil Society for links.

Hi Rob,
"trenchant"?

Fermi,

I can't believe it's a surprise that Rod believes his various hybrids are better in the ground nor that, despite his convivial manner, he can express his views quite clearly.

Thanks, Rob & Fermi — in that case, I’ll look even harder for them here! :)
