Hi Gang,

I've tried a few Narcissus varieties here.  This winter was barely zone 9a, 
and last winter was zone 9b.  So, I purchased plants reported to do OK in zone 

Falconet has been a pleasant performer.  It is in mid-bloom now and will be 
done by the end of March.  But, it is increasing, and the flowers are sturdy 
and seem to hold color well.   Just a single stem of 3-5 flowers will perfume a 
room with a gentle and pleasant fragrance.  

I'm growing it in the lawn, and in some flowerbeds.  It seems undemanding, 
tolerating lots of water or just what the rain provides, and accepting 
fertilizer but not seeming to need feeding.  This is the third year it has bloomed and 
I'm happy to see evidence of increase.  For me, the color is great:  yellow 
petals and an orange crown.
