Two siblings from the backcross of Emerald Sea x N. viridiflorus. The one on the left is quite large although it really is very spidery.

    The spidery one looks so startled to me that I was startled! Thanks for posting them.

    I’m intrigued by these fall blooming beauties. I live in southwestern VA (zone 5) and am new to daffnet. I’m just an amateur lover of daffodils, but have a true passion for them. Is there a good source for fall blooming bulbs? –Sarah Newbill

    Hi, Sarah and Chris,  There are some fall blooming species of daffodils, very beautiful diminutive blooms, and some of our friends have been making crosses with these and hybrid daffs for years.  They are starting to show some very unique daffodils as a result and some of them are also fall blooming. I don't know that any of these have been multiplied yet to the point where they are available for purchase though.

    Nancy Wilson in N. California sells miniature and species daffodils and had the fall blooming species N. viridiflorus in her catalog this last year. It is probably too late to order this year, but you can plan for next year!  These are not hardy in TN, so I grow them in pots and they certain are intriguing!

    Welcome to Daffnet and the world of year-round daffodils!  What fun! ;->
