This N.viridiflora seedling is a very early and interesting crossing: 24/88a (Peres X viridiflora) according to John Hunter. 
It flowers very early, May-June, (autumn-early winter) when there is hardly anything in flower, a welcome addition to this time of the season.
It is a delightful small fertile flower, not a miniature, with further breeding potentials.
In addition, it has that overwhelming perfume so typical for the species.
Perhaps John Hunter like to further comment on this beautiful seedling? 
Last but not least, this outstanding, exquisite Div.8 pink tazetta named Fencourt Jewel.
One of many Wilfred Hall’s famous tazettas he created, specializing in this not so well known division.
Again Wilfred might like to comment on this beautiful variety?
