These are superb, Gerd.
Is the hybrid scented?
cheers

Fermi,
The hybrid from Israel has a faint scent - not as much as one would expect from the tazetta parent.

Graham  - You an an incredible collection of Narcissus there.  I have been watching as they unfold by the day. 6a-a may very well be as you say be " a little large  for a miniature" but it is exquisite.

Keep the postings coming.

Ah yes, 'Bell Song,' another I have but had lost the name for, so thanks for that Ross. I really like its little pink cup. I don't like all pink cups. Can't bear 'Foundling' for instance.

Bell Song is yet to flower here; I think it's very similar to "Waterperry" but a more regular flowerer.

New in our garden this weekend, N. "Minnow", a little tazetta type
163905-0

A nice clump of N. bulbocodium
163907-1
and the first flower of Narcissus bulbocodium ssp graellsii from AGS Seedex 2006 (?)
163909-2163911-3

And that lovely hybrid from NZ, "Hawera"
163913-4

cheers

Hi
A familiar name on this winner from the Canberra Show!
I have posted a few photos for Lesley as well!!
We are entering our late flowering period now. The triandus and fernandesii hybrids are all starting to flower. Some are a bit later than normal. This is surprising because the season has been early generally speaking.
Lesley, Kees flower looks like a Division 3 flower rather than Xit which is a small miniature.

Many lovely things here but I am seriously tempted to say some very rude words!

I love the miniature N poeticus that Kees has grown  :)  wondering if it smells like the wild one?
