Narcissus 'Limequilla' X 'Emerald Sea', which is the same parentage as 'Viriquilla', but was grown from Lawrence Trevanion seed. This is a rogue bulb as I dug them 'all' out last summer and moved them. Looks like I'll now have two clumps.

Same hybrid today plus a tiny single with a flower thumbnail size but missing its label, and another group of flowers on my 'Autumn Colors'.

A tiny Narcissus deficiens grown from seed sent by Rafa and a twin-flowered hybrid from Lawrence.

Are they scented?
Hi Diane,
sorry, I'd not replied earlier! They have a peculiar scent which is not as sweet as other "jonquil" types, but not unpleasant.
A second cluster of them is only now coming into flower. They were from a different source so might be a separate clone
cheers

Flowering now: Narcissus tazetta 'Autumn Colors'; N. papyraceus; Narcissus 'Virition' x 'Emerald Sea'; Narcissus viridiflorus. Emptied this pot out in March and couldn't fit all the bulbs back in. So divided them between the original pot and another of the same size. They bulk up so quickly!

Nice to see your plant Anthony , mine is just coming through the soil .

I found the scent of Narcissus viridiflorus to be strong enough to be 'picked up' when driving to a show with the pot in the back of a station wagon.

Narcissus cantabricus today.

Cheers Dave.

What is this pathetic little specimen that is flowering for the second year with tiny, poorly formed flowers, like the one produced a year ago
