Welcome Khalid,
I've just had a quick look through your sempervivum blog. It's very interesting. I will go back for a longer browse when I have more time.
Hope you post some semps in the Sempervivum thread here.

Welcome Khalid & many thanks for the beautiful photos. Could this  be N. assoanus var. praelongus?
Gerry passed away  at home  on 25th February 2021 - his posts are  left  in the  forum in memory of him.
His was a long life - lived well.

Hello

Thanks to all!!!

GERRY

Your question is difficult for me. I have no idea. Do you know the Spanish distribution area for praelongus?
Thank you.

Gerry, this species is no longer valid. In fact Flora Iberica (from Real Jardín Botánico de Madrid) is making a taxonomical revison from this genus and I amfraid most of the members who loves Narcissus genus will be in panic when you will see ALL descriptions of N. fernandesii/N.assoanus in just one species Narcissus assoanus Dufour ex Schult. & Schult. or ALL bulbocodium relatives in N. bulbocodium L.

Definitively I don't support this classification....

Hello Khalid, beautiful clumps of N. assoanus!

I see from your signature block that you're also a fan of Sempervivum and Jovibarba, be sure to check out the Semp & Jov thread on SRGC.

Great pics Khalid.  Thanks for showing us.

Is there a lot of variability of assoanus in the wild?  Those in your pics have a much larger cup than mine do and I'm interested just how much difference there are in localities in the wild?  In the last pic, are both the clumps assoanus, and is the size difference really as pronounced as it looks in the picture? 

Thanks again for the pics.  :)
Cheers.
