Okay, here are the images from the Dutch Grown web page. I’ve given the files some unimaginative names. We can now try to give the cultivars some sort of identification that would enable us to enter them in daffodil shows.

    Thank you, Kirby! I’m fine if we want to go with Larry Force’s suggestion of NVC1 – NVC5, so their seedling designations would be Leenen NVC1 through Leenen NVC5. (NVC for Narcissus Viridiflorus Collection)

    Because I have already given some of the bulbs to someone else with the numbers I had assigned, can we make DG-image-1 Leenen NVC1, DG-image-2 Leenen NVC4, DG-image-3 Leenen NVC5, DG-image-4 Leenen NVC2 and DG-image-5 Leenen NVC3? I will email this to Ben at DutchGrown and explain why we have given them seedling numbers if these designations sound good to you and Larry (and others who ordered the collection).

    That works for me since I haven’t made any labels yet.  It’s true the seedling numbers weren’t assigned by Leenen, but this seems to be about as close as we can get to identifying them in a consistent way among all exhibitors.  Next we’ll have to see what division and color code they look like in real life.

    Becky, Kirby and all,

    Sounds good to me. Kirby, could you edit your images above to reflect this change. We would then have something to refer back to in the future.

    Hello All,

    I was asked to recognize the original photographer for these photos, so while I was at it, I added the new seedling numbers to each photo.

    I am enjoying your conversation.
