Narcissus elegans ?
« on: April 07, 2018, 09:22:44 AM »
These narcissus are flowering in a field opposite our house and according to my wild flower books I believe they are Narcissus elegans , but then I read that they flower in the Autumn? so I am confused.
The petals which fold back are 1 -1.5cms and the the flower approx  3cms wide.  See photo
Pete and Jan. Retired 18 years ago and moved to Le Marche, Italy for the peace and quiet of the countryside and more sunshine, where gardening became a challenge.  We now have a lovely garden with an eclectic selection of plants including many wild flowers of which we are found of.

Jan, They look more like some form of Narcissus tazetta to me, which normally flower in early spring
