My experiance with these small daffodil species is that the flowers often
abort if they are coverd or kept too dry in growth. Also crowded clumps
seem to set a disproportionately small quantity of seed, as recently
discussed with another section which Ina is growing. N triandrus is not
sterile in cultivation, -I have had seeds on my plants in the past. The
bulbs sold by Michael at Slack Top Alpines were seed grown and some of my
plants came from him.
Seed of N triandrus varieties is regularly offerd in the Alpine Garden
Society seed exchange.
