707.380 : NARCISSUS TRIANDRUS var. ALEJANDREI Spain, Burgos, Peñahoradada. R.D.Dominguez coll. (Not a taxon
currently recognized in the RHS classification. In the opinion of Fernández Casas it is a form of N. triandrus var. triandrus.
In the opinion of the collector, Rafael Diez Dominguez, it is like a pure-white form of N.t. subsp. pallidulus, horticulturally
significant as it grows on limestone soils, whereas most colonies of N. triandrus grow on acid substrates.)

694.100 : NARCISSUS ATLANTICUS
   Pictures: 23 Mar. 2018

694.100 : NARCISSUS ATLANTICUS * Morocco, High Atlas, above Amizmiz. 2000m. Among scrub, in soft, moist loam. Ex the 1936, E.K. Balls type coll. (A very local plant in the wild &, after almost 70 years, still rare in cultivation, where it is by no means easy to grow. Sweetly scented, creamy white jonquils carried singly on 15cm. stems. Distinct from the N. rupicola group in its deeper, cup-shaped corona & in the arrangement of the anthers.)

590.256 : IRIS KIRKWOODII

  Pictures: 06 Apr. 2019

590.256 : IRIS KIRKWOODII (Sect. Oncocyclus) * Syria, W of Aleppo, Bishmishli. Rocky outcrops between cultivated fields. Ex R.& R.Wallis 95-09 (From a type-locality collection of this spectacular relative of I. gatesii from around the border of Turkey & Syria. Somewhat intermediate between this and the dark-veined, more southern species centred on I. sofarana. About 30-40cm. tall with huge flowers with tucked-in falls. Standards veined & stippled with violet on a whitish ground. Falls veined with deeper purple. A vigorous plant, possibly needing richer treatment than the Iranian steppe-species.)

JJA 738.230 Ornithogalum bungei

"738.230 : ORNITHOGALUM BUNGEI Iran, Mazanderan, near Siabishe. 1900m. Ex SLIZE 98-71. (A handsome Persian endemic, restricted to the Elburz Mts. along the Caspian coast of northern Iran. Up to 25 big, white flowers with grey-greentinged exteriors arranged in a fairly dense raceme on a 30cm. tall scape. Best given a long, dry rest in summer.)"

498.510 : FRITILLARIA LUSITANICA Spain, Granada, Sierra Nevada, below Penones de San Francisco. 2400m. Open dryish, NW-facing slope. (Seed from Norman Stevens of this superlative high altitude form of this species. We first saw it in the wild in 1970 but have never located it since, when we have been in the area to collect seed. In the 1970's, Paul Furse told us that the name “F. nevadensis” could be applied to this population but we have never been able to trace its origin or validity. Several, large, elongated, grey-green bells variably striped & chequered with maroon on 15cm stems with narrow, curling, greyish leaves.)

- cultivated outside since 2 years

Now that I've picked myself up from the floor I 'm still in disbelief.
