A few from late autumn/early winter:
Narcissus 'Virivest' (01_01MJ = Westholme x N. viridiflorus 7G-G -> 7W-Y) from Lawrence Trevanion in Canberra, started to flower at the end of May (first pic 20th May) through to early June.

Lovely! They look so fresh and it reminds me of our Spring which has already come and gone. There are still wild flowers around but the golden yellow colour  of Sumer is spreading.
I garden in Cyprus, in a flat old farming field, alt. approx. 30 m asl.

What a beauty Fermi.....feel as if we should be enjoying such flowers here at the moment with constant rain and low temperatures- they would seem more fitting!

This is the first of the Narcissus 'Winter Colours' from Lawrence Trevanion - I've labelled it #5 because I got 10 of them and they are variable - a selection of hybrid hoop petticoat daffodil

Thanks, Carole.
Here's another white hoop petticoat which appeared in a pot with something else. It could be a seedling or it may've been a stray bulblet mixed up in the potting mix

Glad you like them, Charithea, because there are more to come!
This is Narcissus 'Nug Nutsch', one of Lawrence Trevanion's "Baby Talk" series,

Lovely Fermi, and so good to see 'out of season' flowers at the  moment as we swelter in high temperatures  :)

A few more unlabelled "hoops".
The cream coloured ones are in a rock garden.
The dark yellow ones were from a small stray bulb found in another daffodil's  pot!

Thanks, Hilary; I've been enjoying your pics of the ancient ruins - I doubt that I'll ever get to see them in person so I appreciate you sharing your pics and stories  :)
Here are a few more "random" hoops in the garden - they tend to seed about gently, but some might be "commercial" forms that are no longer labelled,
cheers

These are some of the Narcissus viridiflorus hybrids raised by Paul Rumkoff in the Otways before he moved and divested himself of much of his garden.
These were the result of crossing Narcissus viridiflorus with the hybrid Narcissus  (Quickstep x N. fernandesii)
