Narcissus cantabricus petunioides today. There are many stems, and support is difficult, so the plant can look rather floppy, but otherwise this is my favourite Narcissus and the scent is fabulous.

Another one from my nascent Narcissus collection: 'Joy Bishop'.

Lovely portrait shots of 'Joy Bishop' even if you are having problems, Chloe.

What a lovely pot full Alex.

Very "arty" shots those Chloe, I'd be proud of those.

Thank you Maggi, Anne and David.

David, I think it's a cousin of your very pretty upward pointing 'Primrose Yellow'. Actually I've just checked my list of bulb acquisitions from last August and it is from LucandLuc at the Mid-Anglia Bulb Sale - thank you LucandLuc!!

Anne, it's simple, but with a sweet scalloped edge.

Alex - those cantabricus are very beautiful!!!

How wonderful to see such a display of the true petunioides. Snowy white and fully flared, they could come from 'Swan Lake.' :D

And as for the puppy, he's utterly gorgeous. What name please Rafa? With paws like those you won't ever need a spade. ::)

I begin to despair of Narcissi that we have labelled as certain species in cultivation, so often they look unlike those you show us Rafa. Is there a good key available anywhere?
Meanwhile, here are some of my plants in flower now. The hybrids are mixed clones, to show the variation you can get from seed. In the last potful, a cross between a petunioid romieuxii and Atlas Gold, many of the hybrids have split coronas, and in fact there was only one of the bulbs that was worth keeping. I'll have to post them individually, as the server can't seem to take more at once.
