I received a bulb, Adam 98-28C (Evans Q28 x N. jonquilla)   from David Adams, Christchurch, New Zealand, in Spring 2009. David Adams attended the Fortuna Show a week after the Murphys National. David asked me how the bulb of 98-28C was doing. I told him it had a bud.  After one year turn around, it bloomed a couple of days ago.  March 29. 
It measures 48 mm wide. Flower stem 10 inches.  Not sure if its fertile but has anthers.

    Hi Donna,
    Evans Q 28 is a 4W – WWP. I think the flower Jon displayed will be Intermediate in size. Its first flower was definitely miniature. It has good form for a small double but its greatest asset will be its strong jonquil fragrance.
