Just popped out to measure 'The Little Gentleman', Anne.  He is about 30cm tall.  As it is a division 6 I expected a bit of reflexion in the petals and did not expect it to be so tall going by the name.
'Waif', which is also div 6 is a little shorter and does reflex but is quite sturdy and not at all waif like.  I will try to take a pic on Sunday.  Off to Perth tomorrow to the SRGC Show.

Narcissus cernuus is a synonym for N. pseudonarcissus ssp moschatus.  Interestingly, the bulbs from C. Breed were actually used for Ben Zonnevelds analysis of the genus.  N. alpestris is another synonym for the same subspecies.

One more came into bloom the last few warm days, really like it.  Its quite short, about 6 inches tall, and very floriforous:  Narcissus tazetta ssp lacticolor

As promised
Waif with The Little Gentleman.  (Jenny and Foundling ( which I believe is a parent of Waif) are in the background).

I've managed to miss the flowers on the earliest ones but Ian kindly took these for me of the ones in flower now....
Each type will have two photos, the first just of the flower and the second with a ruler in to show the scale......if the flower shows above the top of the ruler it is bigger than 30cms.... if you see the flower topping out at the 6cm mark on the ruler it means the stem was 24 cms high..... hope that is both clear and useful!?  :D

Darren already posted his 'Marzo' but I have two different types under that name.... this first one is the correct one, I thought.... the second is something other, though it is the same as Darrens... but cannot be correct  because of  the orange trumpet....  :-\

Still researching this but given that N. cordubensis is one of the parents, I think the first 'Marzo'  is the correct version, tho' pix on Daffseek vary!
