Hello Nils, Vlad and All,

Thank you very much for the interesting video, Vladimir.

For Narcissus naturalizing in grass on heavy soil I recommend Narcissus obvallaris and the true species Narcissus pseudonarcissus. The problem may be that both, especially the last one are difficult to come by. I have established Narcissus obvallaris in a friend’s garden where they self seed and spread but this took several years to visualize because the non flowering young seedlings are invisible in grass.

I have seen  meadows to the horizon  of pseudonarcissus in France in the Massif Central and in valleys in the Vosges on very wet heavy soil, some standing in a few centimeters of water. They are native to some parts of Germany as well. Narcissus pseudonarcissus has its wishes and may dwindle away if you cannot please  them but what you describe seems to come close to what they need. Narcissus obvallaris is easier to please. Both are smaller than the showy large hybrids, though.

For commercial sources of unusual daffodils I recommend from personal  experience good quality and service.
You do not need to be a millionaire to buy from them like at Flying Colors......

Bye for now
