Thanks everyone for the show photos.

Apologies Jaydee, I don’t know the answers to your questions.

The National Daffodil Association of Australia may eventually be a good source of information.

The ACT/NSW Daffodil Association will be involved. I’m not on facebook but if you are it might be worth asking there: –

I expect the Canberra Horticultural Society will be the main engine for organising the show but I can’t see anything there yet.


The autumn has been mild here and the stems are a bit drawn. N. miniatus has been flowering a while. The first N. viridiflorus has just opened.

The first paperwhite has begun – a  N. broussonetii seedling.

This is a seedling that combines a N. elegans hybrid (First Stanza) with Bill Welch’s long cupped Autumn Colors.

Some intense yellow elegans hybrids are flowering.

Autumn Surprise is flowering and other nice 8W-O’s.

There are also a number of elegans hybrids with quite a lot of green.

    Wow, nice! Congratulations! You have a lot of different things going on, but my favorites are the Y-R elegant hybrids. I guess I’m too traditional.
