Cantabricus petunioides is starting to get going - should be a lot of flowers this year...

How long do they go on flowering for Alex?  Your Cantabricus petunioides looks lovely from every angle, even seeing the stamens through the flower from above :)

I had no idea that N. cantabricus could have such a long bloom period!  Is this typical or a clonal trait?  Seems we need to be doing some more breeding with this plant.  Hmmm.  I love learning something new.

For the record, I received seed of N. viridiflorus from the States and they are sprouting like grass!  Apparently, they are weed-like in certain areas of California.  Here's hoping they take to our Summers in Cologne.  Protected from rain on a south balcony, of course.

and two forms of Narcissus bulbocodium. The first with medium size flowers sent me from seeds of Spain in 2006 and N.b. praecox with very large flowers. You can note the difference. If somebody can identify the first ssp, thank for help
