Narcissus 'Canaliculatus' (Division 8). This cultivar was introduced by the English bulb merchants Barr and Sons in the early 20th. century. Peter Barr is quoted in 'The Garden' in 1927 saying it originated in 'Mentone' which is the Italian spelling of the town of Menton near the French Italian border; the Riviera was a popular destination for the British upper class in this period. It is distinguished from the species Narcissus tazetta by being smaller and having grooved leaves from which its name derives (think canals). It has multiple scented flowers at right angles to the 5 inch tall stem. Photos taken in April 2012 by David Pilling. See also the species Narcissus canaliculatus.

Narcissus 'Stocken' (Division 7) grows from 5in (12 cm) with 2-3 tiny golden yellow fragrant flowers per stem. Research on the Internet is conflicted. Some suggest it is a named form of Narcissus willkommii and it certainly looks like photos I have seen of that species (included in the Kew monocot checklist in Narcissus jonquilla), but another source described it as a cross between Narcissus jonquilla and Narcissus tazetta. Photos from Mary Sue Ittner. It blooms best with a dry summer dormancy.
