This is a very commonly seen tazetta narcissus found in many old gardens around Victoria.
I had thought that they were the variety "Straws" which Daffseek says is a synonym of 'Minor Monarque' https://daffseek.org/detail-page/?cultivar=Minor%20Monarque&lastpage=1&which=hist1
But I don't think it quite matches some of the pics - I'd say the petals are lemon rather than white but maybe it's an artifact of the photography?

This is what I got as Narcissus hispanicus a few years ago from Glenbrook Bulb Farm in Tasmania.
I got two bulbs and one turned out to be taller than the other. These are the taller ones - you can see the shorter ones just emerging in the second pic,

This is a seedling hoop petticoat daff with quite long petals - longer than the cup!
The third pic is of 'Ianmon', another of Rod Barwick's "Little Detective" series which I think might be the parent of the long petalled hoop

Interesting starry effect! Worth multiplying, I'd have thought.

Hi Alisdair,
I agree - its "working title" is "Redesdale Star" ;D
Here's another of Lawrence's hybrids which involves Narcissus viridiflorus: Narcissus 'Viriquilla'
