Hi all,

 

Been doing reading on old jonquil doubles

Barr 1884 indicates there are at least three double jonquils: one is a double of N. jonquilla, two are doubles of N. x odorus, one being Queen Ann’s (‘Flore Pleno’) and the other he gives no name to.

Obviously Flore Pleno is still commercially available, but are the other two? What were / are their names? (besides “Plenus” !!! )
