This is a quite ordinary flower shape, but very vigorous and free flowering. It surprised me this year by producing a flower on seeds sown in 2009.

Lastly, a single bulb of the aptly named 'Mondieu'.

A very nice collection Anne. I particularly like the one you describe as 'ordinary'!

Flowering some time before the Cazorla type this is Narcissus hedraeanthus from the Desfiladero de Despeñaperros  - the ravine of the down falling dogs (if I translate correctly).

Hi Anne,

Glad those bulbs I sent are doing well. Your Crocus baytopiorum are thriving here, and they are my favourite of the forms I grow since they alone do not etiolate when in flower!

I love that Narcissus Mondieu, a beautiful big, flat corona.

Hi Guys,

I'd like to join in this conversation - I'm Marcus Harvey from Tasmania where I own a specialist plant nursery.

Anne, I'm interested in your Mondieu - I am surprised to see this plant already in the UK. Is there someone offering it for sale there?

Cheers, Marcus

Nice hedraeanthus Wim and Gerd.

Lovely collection Anne. I liked Mondieu but to me it looks not unlike many of the petunioid forms. Or am I just being an old fuddy duddy?

Hi David, it's just BIG. Welcome Marcus, we hear your name often on the forum. Mondieu came to me as a gift from a friend in the US. Is it one of yours?
Gerd, your hedreanthus is very distinct and nice - mine are very short like Wim's.

Yes, Gerd's hedraeanthus is both distinctive  & attractive. Perhaps its height is a consequence of being fed on dead dog?

No dead dogs around here - (is this a common saying?)  :)
The height of the Desfiladero type is a genetic factor - the specimen from the Sierra de Cazorla are always much shorter - just as the outstanding ones from Wim.
