Narcissus iohannis
I have some iohannis from your seeds, Rafa. It is a little beauty, but how is it distinguished from N. triandrus?

Anne, the key is the leaves, while N. triandrus have 2 strip in the back side, N. iohannis have several, variable number of them and very often asimetric something that indicates a possible hybrid origin.
Also the flowers have differen proportions between tepals and corone. In N. iohannis it is almost the same dimention and in N. triandrus tepals are longuer than corone.

This is why I don't supported any moresubsps in Ganymedes sections. So the species are:

- N. triandrus
      . var. loiseleuri
- N. iohannis
- N. pulchellus (not sure if it is the older name)
- N. lusitanicus

Thank you, I will have a look at my different forms. Just one thing- I have seen you use the first photograph to explain N. alejandrei - are they the same?

yes Anne, you are right, it was an old picture. N. iohannis has been also described as Narcissus triandrus subsp. triandrus var. alejandrei.

Two bigger daffs.  Narcisus 'Red Hackle'  one of the old Brodie daffodils.  A lovely colour when newly open but fades quickly in the sun.

Narcissus 'Easter Bonnet'.  A similar colour but a bigger flower and does not fade so quickly.  This year it flowered in time for Easter.  Only one flower and I'm not sure how deep the bulb is as I thought I had removed it but it still keeps coming up though not increasing much.
