For the second year this bulb produced this peculiar flat stem in attempting to make 5-6 blooms. It is from a bed of N. asturiensis x N. cyclamineus seedlings – a couple of other flowers from the same bulb were normal..
This year flowers are blooming 3 -4 weeks ahead of what I have come to regard as normal.

    Brian, I love the story about Gerritsen
    planting a pair of scissors with a bulb
    and getting the first split corona
    daffodil. Did you plant a blender or a
    paper shredder with this one?
