Dear Mark,

	I’ve grown ‘Cedric’ for years. In very mild winters it may be in bloom before the end of Jan, but mid Feb to Mid March is far more common . It is always the earliest Narc. to bloom here. It is unfortunately slow to multiply in my hard climate though. Being the first thing to produce foliage it is always a target for bunnies and I have to put a bell jar over it to keep it from being eaten. I know it is a Narc and ‘nothing ‘ eats them.

	Even so, it is one of my favorites and I wish it would  multiply faster and I could spread it around the garden. 

		Best		 Jim W in Kansas City MO area where it went down to -10F last night. We’ll measure the losses come March, but today is going to be a balmy high temp of 6 F.
