Having seen the lovely cyclamineus posted here I decided I had to get some and a lovely parcel arrived today from Twelve Nunns with 4 pots beautifully packed in hessian jackets;

I'm keeping one potful on my desk for the moment to I can enjoy it in close up while working. They have a strange musty scent.

Good point Gail - with such neat  packaging, they'd make  a lovely  gift - I think Twelve  Nunns are  well-known for that lovely  hessian covering to keep all the  soil and grit   safe.

The efforts to create different forms of x susannae-type (triandrus x cantabricus) narcissi have come to fruition this year with many of the seedlings flowering for the first time. The first to flower are:
AW 4490 Narcissus triandrus pallidulus (I think) x eualbidus sown 2015, 8 clones


Family


AW 4490 - 8 clones multi.


AW 4490 - 8 clones rule

I just HAD to change  your  photos to showing large size, Anne : I just  LOVE  these  hybrids - Ian had to make  our  own  N. x susannae plants  too - and I think they are  my  all time  favourites.

Narcissus tazetta 'Autumn Colors' from Bill Welch seed sown in 2014. Second year of flowering here in East Auckland. Third photo was the afternoon of the same day as the first two.

Glorious variety with your triandrus x cantabricus crosses!

Narcissus moschatus [or  Narcissus pseudonarcissus subsp. moschatus?].

Can anyone get seed set on this?

Here are some of my N. cyclamineus. They are among my top 10 bulbs for the garden.



...and a pretty little cyclamineus hybrid.
