In the greenhouse, the first narcissus into flower this year is Craigton Chorister.

They cheer you up don't they?  :D

Ann, thanks for the reminder, they are all “ex’s” from seed. Will miss the seed exchange this year.

I had a day off today and went to Westacre Gardens near Swaffham. Some late nerines, liriopes and salvias in flower and somewhat unexpectedly a bulbocodium type narcissus. I was so delighted to find a plant of Daphne bholua 'Garden House Ghost' in their nursery which has been on my wish list for a while that I forgot to ask them about the narcissus. Does anyone know which one it is?

Curiously, it looks like N. obesus, which is usually very late.

I fell in love  with this little  beauty when I first  saw  its  photo here  in 2016! https://www.srgc.org.uk/forum/index.php?topic=13879.msg347549#msg347549

 Does  the  name  have an English meaning?

Shiroi means white, so it might be referring to the pale colour.

I'd suggest that, since Shiraume is composed of the words for white and plum, the name is meant to be taken literally; a flower that evokes an image of plum flowers.
