Narcissus calcicola

Although, N. rupicola normally has only one flower per scape, I have seen a
number in the wild with two flowers and, on two occasions, three flowers.
This species has virtually no pedicel so is very crowded when carrying more
than one flower.  N. calcicola has a much longer pedicel.  Multiple flowers
per scape are not crowded.  The shape of the coronas can vary widely within
a population.  Surely a three-headed stem raised from seed would be N.
calcicola rather than N. rupicola.
