Narcissus 'Thalia'

Does anyone grow Narcissus 'Thalia'? Daffseek cites the selection as fertile, at least partially anyway? I have it growing in a variety of locations and with a variety of different combinations of Narcissus cultivars. None of my 'Thalia's' have ever set seed. In one spot, they grow with the relatively late blooming N. 'Hillstar' (a jonquil, sibling seedling to 'Pipit' apparently). 'Hillstar' has set abundant seed, perhaps in part thanks to solitary bees (one of which I photographed inside one of the 'Hillstar' flowers. Last year, bumblebees were working 'Thalia', yet no seed was set last year either.

So, I am curious if Narcissus 'Thalia' has ever set seed for anybody or as a confirmed pollen parent?
