Thanks for compliments!

N. serotinus has a nice scent - the other one not (at least not at a temperature of + 10 Celsius this morning).

These are

Narcissus deficiens (miniatus) in an orange tone
                                            in a yellowish tone (colour not true reproduced here)  + see extra petals!
                                            and with a 'normal' deficiens for comparison

I am finding it difficult to follow the various names for the autumn-flowerers.
I received this as N. serotinus, but it may be N. obsoletus. Any comments please!

Without any doubt not Narcissus serotinus L. - Spanish specialists call it deficiens (miniatus) now - I am in the process of to become accustomed to this.

Ha!  ;D ;D
What should I put on the label - N. deficiens? I am seriously considering putting several labels in each pot, each with a different name. Hopefully one will be correct!
