Gerd, your  + 4. Narcissus serotinus (miniatus) x N. tazetta
           - perhaps the scarcest autumn flowering (wild occuring) hybrid - is unbelievably beautiful, thanks so much for posting a photo...it always amazes me how low key Forum Members are about such stars in the plant world

Robin, David,
Thanks for the compliments - especially for the term 'low key' which I noticed the first time, not sure if it may be the case  :)

Gerd, your treatment methods seem to work out excellent!  ;)
I presume that we can expect many more autumn flowering Narcissus then?? 8)

I have been waiting for the first pics of autumn flowering narcissi, so thank you Gerd. I'm hoping mine will do well this year. I was rather disappointed not to find Narcissus elegans for sale anywhere.

Once again, thanks for the kind remarks.
Luit, I hope there will follow some others. However at present no signs of flower stalks.
I believe flower formation of the serotinus-tazetta hybrid was induced by the hot summer temperatures of Israel.  I received this species at the beginning of July and after that no artificial warming.
Nevertheless the early flowering date, much ahead of its parents, surprised me.

Some great minis there, Graham!
N.scaberulus is also in flower in our garden,
163327-0

And this little white which I think is "Pico Blanco"
163329-1

And the first flower on N.bulbocodium obesus,
163331-2

More florets open on N. Splatter,
163333-3 163335-4

My first obesus are out too Fermi and some seedlings from it, with the same fat flowers but strictly upright foliage. 'Pico Blanco' is very nice.

Where is Paul?

These are superb, Gerd.
Is the hybrid scented?

Hi
Paul is probably getting ready for the show.
Fermi, your N. scaberulus does not look right. Foliage should be glaucus and upright and tiny flowers are carried about 7-10 cm above ground. Where did you get it?
