Long-lasting Narcissus romieuxii

Whenever I become aware that a flower has been open in the garden for a very long time, I can never tell exactly how long.

I can't this time, either, but  five weeks ago I took some visitors outside to show them the flowers of Narcissus romieuxii which had already been open for a while.

They've since endured snow and strong winds, but they are still flowering.  Amazing endurance.

Such a contrast to the many South African bulbs which remain open for only a few hours.
