707.200 : NARCISSUS TORTIFOLIUS Spain, Almeria, Sierra de los Filabres. 400m. JWB02-02 (A remarkable species, described
in 1977. A local endemic of hot, gypsum hills, introduced by John in 1986. Possibly closest to N. dubius, it may have originated
by hybridization between Sections Tazetta & Jonquillae. Quite dwarf with creamy, clustered flowers & short twisted glaucous
leaves, lying flat on the ground. Desirable but slow-growing & difficult to flower in cultivation in the UK.)

509.610 : GALANTHUS WORONOWII * No data. Confused with the Aegean G. ikariae for many years, this splendid plant with broad, glossy, green leaves has now been recognized at full specific level in the 1999 Davis account of this confusing genus. Distributed between 70m. & 1400m. altitude in the E of the Black Sea from S Russia through Georgia.

From Viv Condon in Australia: I don’t think Primula mollis from Archibald seed has been put on this site, collection number 4,624.010 - sorry I have not made a note in my book of the date I received the seed. We have had a dry winter here and a lovely moist summer so far, so this plant has set plenty of seed which I will put on the SRGC seed exchange. It is a very beautiful Primula and does not mind our heat and everyone has asked what it is, even a recent Japanese visitor. John Richards in his book on Primula does not speak kindly of it, but I have to disagree with him as it is a very beautiful Primula for shaded garden conditions. I will be putting this on our local blog so that people can learn more about it.
I can’t help but miss Jim and Jenny Archibald's list, I felt it would go on for ever. There is nothing that even come close to that wonderful fresh collected seed that they distributed.

  Pictures: 01 Feb. 2019

339.609 : CROCUS ABANTENSIS * Turkey, Bolu, near Abant golu. 1100m. (A beautiful spring-flowering species with flowers in clear, bright blue, contrasting with the yellow throats. Only known from the area around Lake Abant, in the cold, wet, NW corner of Turkey. It does well outside in the UK and, if grown in a pot, should not be overdried in summer.)

689.270 : MUSCARI DISCOLOR

  Pictures: 08 Feb. 2019

689.270 : MUSCARI DISCOLOR (Subgen. Botryanthus) * Turkey, Mardin, N of Mardin. 1100m. Among talus on steep limestone slopes. (This is the 'true' plant. Hausshnecht's type-collection was from Mardin & this taxon appears to be restricted to the hills in southern Urfa & Mardin provinces, along the northern edge of the Syrian Desert running towards the Iraqi border. Extreamely early flowering (February with us) & about 10cm. tall with racemes of bicolored, open-mouthed bells, the blackish blue of the base contrasting with the white of the apex, which occupies almost half the length of each flower.)

  Sowing: Nov. 2008
  Germinating: Dec. 2008
  First blooming: 05 Feb. 2013

688.705 : MUSCARI COELESTE (Subgen. Pseudomuscari) * Turkey, Nigde, Kamirkazik Dag, 1700-1750m. Ex KPPZ 90-318. (A diminutive Turkish alpine endemic with a classic Anatolian diagonal distribution, obliquely from here almost to the Georgian & Iranian borders. Only a few cm. high with tight, rounded racemes of open-mouthed, sky-blue bells followed by turquoise-blue tinted capsules. A very local species, which is little-known but will certainly resent hot, dry conditions.)
