From Bart, elsewhere in this forum ....
Cyclamen persicum is in full swing now. I have a few plants from ex Jim Archibald seed and they are all very different. One has been in flower for a while and is naturally very leggy. The others are short and stocky, but I have no pictures of them yet


Cyclamen persicum puniceum ex JJA 366552


In the light of the setting sun it seems to glow in a salmony hue:

Pictures by Jon  Evans, kindly shared from his online diary  - the plants are being grown by Bob and Rannveig Wallis.

601.600 : IRIS ZAGRICA

  Pictures: 16 Feb. 2019

601.600 : IRIS ZAGRICA (Subgen. Hermodactyloides) * Iran, Kordestan, SW of Daraki. 2500m. Loose, SW-facing limestone slope. (Previously listed as Iris aff. reticulata under our reference number 595.810, this has now been described as a new species, differing markedly from I. reticulata in the flower structure. This population, from the same slope on the Iraqi border as our mysterious Fritillaria collection 17255, carries its capsules on long, arching, wiry pedicels, in the previously unique manner of I. pamphylica but more or less erect rather than drooping. It superficially differs a little from the forms from the Kurdish steppes, now attributed to this new species, but so notably as to merit further separation. Foliage is typical of Iris reticulata and the flowers are bicoloured: ice-blue, almost white, & dark blue on the blade of the falls.

  Seeds from: NEWSLETTER & SEEDLIST / OCTOBER, 2009
  Sowing: Feb. 2010
  Germinating: Feb. 2011
  First blooming: 12 Mar. 2016

What a wonderful dwarf Narcissus -beautifully grown YT.

Can I ask about the substrate in the pot? The top-dressing looks like pumice. Do you grow this Narcissus and many of your other dwarf bulbs in pumice?
