Armin,
Narcissus miniatus - segregated from serotinus recently comes from Southern Spain, the Balearic Islands and Crete. Because of its southern distribution (and always at lower elevations there) it isn't hardy in the north.

Brian and Gerd
thank you very much for the explanations.
As I don't have a cold house to cultivate N.miniatus I'll continue enjoying the forumists pictures and comments instead ;)
Best wishes
Armin

This is a plant of a small isolated population of the Balearic Islands - it seems less fluffy as the ones Hans showed - but I think it fits with the description.

Thanks Luc I hope I will get some seed this year just two flowers are open and it is raining nearly all the time (resembles more Scotland than Majorca)

Befor it started to rain i could take some  pictures of two other autumn flowering relatives of Narcissus miniatus which were given to me by a narcissus specialist of this forum: Narcissus elegans...

... and Narcissus X perezlarae (N. serotinus (N. miniatus?) X N. humilis)

Hi Hans,

I have two questions regarding this hybrid, first is it sterile second i have noticed  the flower lacks its  typical Narcissus crown, is it normal for this hybrid ?

Thanks to all!

Oron - quite interesting - I had the same question!
I have been answered  N. x perezlarae has  2n = 29 Chromosomes (resulting of serotinus (30) X cavanillesia (humilis)(28) - and is therefore sterile (but I will try my luck ;-))

Also this hybrid has a crown - but as I hope you will be able to see it at the picture taken with an other angle - it is extremly small.

Hans,

Now I can see clearly the crown, thank you.
Very interesting hybrid, I was happy to see this morning that I have also a bud of this h. from bulbs sent to me by Rafa a few weeks ago.

And.... happy birthday  ;)
