We are heading into mid-winter here but nevertheless there are plenty of daffodils.

Bulbocodiums of course:

08 21b sm 13 22vb sm 14 25vb sm 14 42vb sm 15 15vb sm 15 18b sm 16 15b sm

05 51b sm 08 16b sm


Some nice tazettas – just.

07 20t sm

A cyclataz from N. cyclamineus x Autumn Colors:

10 01dt sma

Some fertile viridiflorus hybrids:

14 01mjsm Virition sm

A ghostly Viriverse x N. dubius:

12 12mj sm

I find the long lax strap-like foliage of these dubius hybrids a little disturbing but I’m sure in some settings they would look terrific.

    Lawrence, I envy you for the tazetta and the cyclataz. I hope to get some bulbs of the old Cyclataz (1922) from Choice bulbs this autumn to treat them for doubling the chromosome content. Your cross with many flowers per stem should be much better for such a treatment.
