Hi all,

Jim W., I got three bulbs of N. calciola from Jane last Fall and planted 
them outdoors in my raised-bed rock garden.  There is green Narcissus 
foliage coming up where the labels shows that those were planted!  We had 
pretty close to a standard zone 5 winter here, with somewhat more snow than 

I'll let you know if these bloom.  Also coming up in the same rock garden 
are NN. assoanus (two different accessions) N. rupicola, N. wilkommii, lots 
of N. fernandesii, and a straggler of N. henriquesii.

No flower buds yet on these narcissi.
