Thanks! Now all I need is a $40 million biology laboratory and I will be 
able to label my narcissi!

The N. bulbocodium forms are continuing to flower through the very long 
period during which different ones appear, and I am not even going to 
attempt to sort them out, but will merely describe and photograph them for 
the database. If they appear on my list and originate from a population new 
to other growers, perhaps they will be of interest for genetic variation, 
or to trial in gardens where not all forms succeed.
