Hoop petticoat season has just arrived here at my house :)
A newly flowering seedling, bred by me, looks like a flat disk rather than a hoop petticoat, though ::)

A potful Narcissus ‘Craigton Chorister’ is almost in full bloom now (pic.1 & 2).

And a descendant of N. ‘Craigton Chorister’ opens its first flowers same time (pic.3 & 4).

'Craigton Chorister' is  singing you a  fine  chorus  for the  coming  year, Tatsuo!  Only  one  flower  out  here so far.

Maggi and Ian,
Thank you for sharing the "world famous" Craigton Road Series Daffodils for us.
‘Craigton Chorister’ usually opens its flowers in mid December at here.
Looks 2 weeks later than the usual flowering time this year.


Luc,
Thank you! Your narcissus posted this forum are all beautiful, too ;)

Thx Gerd !
They are out in the garden all right, in a slightly raised crevice bed, since they've been there, they have survived  -7 to -8 C, I have another N. romieuxii in the garden that has been there for over 10 years and has survived -12C.
