Early Daffodills and now

Several people mentioned 'Quail' as an early daffodil. A couple of years 
ago I bought a large number of these (Dutch-grown) for the garden, then 
read that the stock was likely infected with a virus. Sure enough, when 
they came up, they were streaked and distorted, so I dug them up and 
disposed of them.

This year I also noticed some faint, pale streaking on foliage of Narcissus 
alpestris (also known as N. moschatus), a species that has always been 
difficult here (and elsewhere). I wonder if it's particularly susceptible 
to Narcissus viruses.
