« on: January 03, 2010, 10:39:53 AM »
About time we started up a 2010 thread for these gems.

Flowering for me today despite -6°C outside :

1) Narcissus "Craigton Clanger" - quite well known around here ....  ;D
2) Narcissus cantabricus monophyllus
3) Narcissus zaianicus lutescens x cantabricus

Always a joy Luc ,that's for sure. I like the first one , because the color looks a bit softer.
Here a bit more inland ,only romieuxii is flowering ,but the buds in the others are coming.

All beautiful Luc 8)

N. romieuxii is the only one flowering here but now collapses every night & perks up again each day as Ian showed in his Bulblog.  N. cantabricus that flowered last September has seed pods almost ripe, while N. asturiensis & my few other early pseudonarcissus types are slow this season.

Very nice Luc.  The N.  zaianicus lutescens x cantabricus which you kindly sent me is in flower but for some reason is slightly misshapen. So no pic. Yours looks superb.

I guess you mean flowering inside despite -6°C outside ?

Is that nice hybrid man-made ?

The N.  zaianicus lutescens x cantabricus you sent me (thank you!!) are looking healthy, but the bud got stuck emerging from the spathe, and so is also mis-shapen. I should have helped it when I saw the problem. I will look forward to the next one - yours is beautiful.

Thanks for helping out Gerry  :D  :D!

Sorry to hear yours and Anne's didn't form perfect flowers.
They may not have liked crossing the channel..  :-\
I hope they do better for you next year  !

And yes LucS - they were flowering inside and the -6°C was definitely outside... ;D ;D

I have this note and photo from Fritz Kummert

I think that we can show one happy senior rock gardener
with new alpine house and a crevice bed. As seen in other thread
http://www.srgc.org.uk/smf/index.php?topic=4656.msg126294#msg126294

Austrian plantsman Fritz Kummert just today send me interesting information about really small Narcissus together with a cute photograph. My Czech bulletin Skalnicky will share the pleasure with SRGC Forum and we will wish Stefi and Fritz
long lasting happiness.



"Narcissus cantabricus DC. ssp. monophyllus

  After information from Spanish Narcissus specialists there are more than one species involved in what is called Narcissus cantabricus. The naming of this species was from the beginning an error, de Candolle’s herbarium-sheet was labelled to hail from “Cantabria”, but no white hoop-petticoat grows in this region!

  Flora Europaea ignores the subspecies monophyllus, which is found at the Puerto de la Virgen and around the Santuario de la Virgen in the Sierra de los Filabres. It is a plant of crystalline rocks; a typical companion plant is Cistus albidus. The soils in which subspecies monophyllus occur is typical very shallow and stony. We saw it on two occasions in full flower: 2000 end of February and 2009 end of March. The small spherical bulbs lie not very deep in the ground and possess in most cases only one thread-like leaf. The sight of thousands and thousands of these glistening white flowers is breath taking!

  After my experience this small narcissus cannot be grown in the open ground, it is a plant for the alpine-house. Propagation takes place by division of the bulbs, which is slowly with some clones, or through seeding. Seed-set in the alpine-house is good after artificial pollination. It lasts at least three years from sowing to the first flower!"

Hello,
These are some pictures from my friend Angel Sánchez of Narcissus albicans acctually blooming in the wild, although it was described perfectly, it was  considered many time as N. cantabricus and many other names, also considered hybrids.

Thank you and Angel, Rafa. These are very interesting. No wonder such confusion - they are very variable.

Many thanks Rafa & Angel. It would be interesting to have some information on  the specific differences between N. albicans & N cantabricus.
