Hi Marilyn & Harold
Following all the discussions about n.panizzianus & n.pacybolbus this is the stock you both saw at Harrogate last year. This stock is widely shown in the UK under the n.pacybolbus flag and I have attached a photo of the vase Terry had in her second place exhibit and there is a slight difference in the form to Janine’s, but they are grown about 150 miles apart in cooler conditions. I believe some of Janine’s stock was from Terry and we will probably continue to show this under the name of pacybolbus until we have evidence with both varieties shown side by side on the same plot. As you all know in any group of species after a period of time there are many different forms all with slight differences – that’s the trouble with splitting -look at n.cordubensis,fernandesii & henriquesii Terry has various clones of each through selection and they could all be given names if the botanists got hold of them.  Look what is happening to the bulbocodium’s.
The answer to most of the problems would be solved if we group similar varieties instead of splitting and by selection the best one for exhibition would excepted form.
See you both next year at Murphys and Terry will try with some manipulation to bring an example

    Hi Roger,
    I was not on the tour to Harrogate last year. I have no idea what was exhibited. I do know as a fact that the type came from Oran, Algeria not Cypress or Southern Spain.

    Does anyone grow a genuine Narcissus canariensis, or have a photograph?
