If lovers of Crocus are Croconuts & lovers of Galanthus are Galanthophiles, perhaps lovers of Narcissus should be Narcissists?

I agree, Gerry.... the difficulty lies in getting them to come away from the mirror and admit to it! ::)

I took this picture on 2 January of N cantabricus x romieuxii ?not sure if this is correct,I have to admit to a small fan heater in my greenhouse,I switch on if the forcast is lower than minus 3 even so the water in the can froze to quarter of an inch thick on the coldest  of the days.

I'm guessing that will be Narcissus 'Camoro' - mine is just a little behind yours.
Personally, I am happy to be a daffanatic  :P

Lesley, check out the thread on "plants named after Greek gods, etc" for the info on Narciss - you may be thinking of Oedipus! ("Oedipus-Smedipus can't you see how much he loves his mother!")

I suspect not Arnold. Perhaps a form of N. romieuxii?

Tony, I hope so. Arnold, I think your little white one is a rather nice cantabricus, going by the white style.

A friend sent me a large box of twenty five or so miniature Narcissus.  I was madly opening small paper bags and labeling and potting
Who knows what other errors there are.
