That one is cute... short and tubby... it is singing  my song!

I think the flush of colour at the end of the trumpet around the frill is very pretty.  Is there just a hint of pink or apricot in there?

Afraid so - it was a stronger shade when it first opened. It also has that nice sparkly effect on the petals.

I like the touch of colour when it is subtle like that, just a hint of a tint around the mouth. Very smart flower, Anne.

Narcissus calcicola ‘Idol’

A gift from Wim de Goede.
The flowers are somewhat smaller than the MS 450 form posted above  - 23mm diam. as opposed to 30mm -  but the scent is just as good.
This is the second time I have attempted to grow this cv. The first time it disappeared after one year; I hope these last a bit longer.
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.

"Hawera" A few small bulbs given to me in 2010 - didn't flower last year but seem to have settled into this pot.
I daren't plant small bulbs in my rock garden beds any more as they are grazed by mice/voles. So far this year they have had all myF. meleagris & a nicely flowering clump of Corydalis solida also Tulipa urumensis badly damaged.
