Hello Dell ~

While my email address is DaveKarn, my genuine, real assigned name is Dave
Karnstedt!  Thanks for the "noted hybridizer" compliment!  Actually, I have
done very little miniature hybridizing as fertile froms are difficult to
find.  Most of those in existence have resulted from 2n species x 4n hybrid
crosses and are triploid and, thus, infertile.  Thus, my major breeding
efforts have been concentrated within what are known as "standard"

Incidentally, 'Elvira' is a tazetta type and is, technically, 8W-YYO.
(Jonquils are technically in RHS Division 7.)  'Elvira' is the form from
which the far better known 'Cheerfulness' originally sported.  Either of
them are good growers producing lots of flowers.
