Hi Joe,

It was me, Jay in North Carolina, with the blooming Narcissus 'February Gold'.  I
posted about the pictures I added to the wiki on January 10 as they were just
getting started.  On January 17, I added another picture of a whole mass of them
blooming.  That was just before it got cold here, and it has stayed cold for
about a month straight.  The 'February Gold' have been through lows of 15
degrees and most are still in good condition.  A few around the edges of the
patches had scapes bend over or crimp from the cumulative effects of very cold
temperatures and two minor snowfalls, but the scapes in the center have been able
to lean on the foliage and each other and have stood up well to all of this.

Here's a link to the pictures I added in January:…

A few each of N. 'Ice Follies', N. 'Jetfire', and N. 'Tete-a-Tete' opened this
week in response to Monday's mild temperatures, but we're back in the cooler
again.  If we have a few days of warmth in a row, hundreds of new Narcissus
flowers are ready to make a nice show, perhaps late next week will be warm

About a month ago Jim M. wrote that Narcissus 'February Gold' was blooming
in his Maryland garden.  My own plants are just starting to bloom.  Today is
Feb. 16, and this is a day or two earlier than I've got them down for in my
notes, but I think my notes are very general.  So, I think they are blooming
for me the same time as they always do.
