another unknown misnamed bulb
« on: April 16, 2007, 11:48:46 AM »
Last spring I bought a small pot of flowering Narcissus "baby moon"
 Last autumn at the same time and  garden centre that I bought Crocus "Snow Bunting" (which turned out to be "Ard Schenk") I bought 10 "baby moon" bulbs.
They have just come into flower and bear no resemblance to "baby moon" as you can see from the photo.
The flower on the left has just opened,that on the right has been open for three or four days.
Has anyone an idea as to its identity?
