Narcissus December 2018
« on: November 30, 2018, 10:12:13 AM »
Ok I'm a day early, but it's a bit late for November!
Craigton Chorister was just pipped for first place by a flower or two of N. cantabricus foliosus, closely followed by N. romieuxii Mrs McGee. Just starting is prettily scolloped Shiraume and lovely Tethys.

Wow! Many hoops are coming into flower there, Anne :D
My hoops - ‘Craigton Chorister’, ‘Mrs. McGee’, ‘Shiraume’ and ‘Tethys’ - are showing their leaves only at the moment ::)

Some hoops in flower here, mostly out for a week or so already, but only now has the wind dropped enough to get out and take some photos.

N. ‘Craigton Chorister’ (with N. ‘Camoro’ behind)
N. x romanensis
N. romieuxii rifanus

This is a good year, with a proper summer baking and a sudden drop in temperatures in autumn. Many more flowers on the way!

lovely daffodils, it's good to see them back.
Indeed the pots are full of buds and it looks a promising season.

Narcissus ‘黄宝 (Kihō)’
A mysterious early flowering yellow hoop is just coming into flower :) It was selected from seedlings from MONOCOT NURSERY as “N. bulbocodium var. conspicuus S.F. 391 Spain, Ubrique”, and named by an alpine nursery in Japan. It is slightly fraglant just like mixing with N. romieuxii and N. cantabricus. Looks a yellow version of N. cantabricus var. foliosus for me. May be a natural hybrid origin?
