While the freeze persists, an opportunity to photograph some daffodils, these are selected hoop petticoat seedlings, only Daphnis is named so far. The Daphnis flowers show the evolution of the flower shape as it matures, from cone to disk to rolled rim on the oldest flower.

Thank you Ann! What are the difficulties with your plants? I am not the experienced grower of daffodils but until now I had
no problems with albimarginatus.

Gerd, if I knew what the problem was, I would fix it. The bulbs got smaller and stopped flowering. I tried in different conditions, but it doesn't seem to help. I sent some back to Spain last year as I did not want to kill them all, but the few I have left are just emerging. I do have hybrid seedlings from them though. I am really happy to see they are doing well somewhere else, as I know how rare and precious they are.

I see it has a KV number - did Kurt Vickery collect the seeds? Can you tell me how you are growing it?

Looking back at Kurt's 2017 catalogue, my interpretation is that the seeds are from cultivated plants of his own collection at Bou Hachem, Morocco, rather than selling wild collected seeds directly. I'd assume that the original wild collection of KV 702 was of seed rather than plants. The catalogue also indicates that the original collection was a solo trip.

Yvain, they are about 30 cm and they build seed. Seedset seems a bit erratic - last year there were none.
