Beautiful Fermi - flowers before the leaves appear?

Yes, it seems that way, though I've been told that Narcissus viridiflorus when it reaches flowering size only sends up flowers stems which are able to photosynthesize so leaves are unnecessary!
I think this one does send up leaves later in the year,

Hilary, have you ever seen the drifts of Narcissus poeticus in Northern Greece? These were near Mavrouni.

No, our trips north always seem to have been either in the winter or on a bus tour

Great photo

Lovely photo Alisdair - what a privilege to see these beautiful Narcissus growing in their natural environment - thanks for sharing. I often think many flowers lose some of their beauty when grown in gardens however carefully we place them, too much competition at times.

Narcissus
Etincelante = sparkly
Fortissimo = very loud
Las Vegas, This needs no explanation

Three more Narcissus seen in the Royal Botanic Garden Madrid in April 2018

There are very many references to Narcissus in THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN . I don’t know how many are for wild Narcissus and how many for these ‘tame’ ones

To read about a new garden where Narcissus are planted between the roses go to THE MEDITERRANEAN GARDEN number 78, October 2014 and read
TWO GARDENS by Carole Cross

There are photos of these two gardens here

So strange to see that flowering already in your autumn, when we still have a few narcissi flowering here at the end of our spring!

Hi Hilary,
 I meant to reply to your post awhile ago! I think the Botanic Garden may've misread the name which I think is "Itzim" https://daffseek.org/detail-page/?cultivar=Itzim&auto=1
