Hi all,
 
This is from a daff person who’s been rescuing from her county for years, some historic, some modern/show
I said i’d send this to daffnet, see if anyone has a suggestion
it is a very large flower…

    Sara:  I think it is Foresight, a pre 1944 introduction by Wilson in England.  I have grown it here and I have pictures in my master iPhoto file which seem very very similar.  However the shots I ‘borrowed’ from Daffseek show a very orange shaded corona but I discount them.  The RHS verbal description in their big Register and Classified List (1987) tracks what I grow.


    Regards John

    Sara,
    What colour is the tube – the conical bit between the back of the petals and the ovary? If deep yellow, the same as the trumpet then it might be the species N. nobilis – or certainly a very close relative. It looks pretty typical to my eye. I’ll try to post a picture separately. has there been any Spanish settlement in the area from which it came?
