Rather weird - can't decide if I find them strangely attractive or deformed. 🤔

I'd go for deformed! I'm worried that they've become diseased - but it may be due to extreme weather  :-\
Here are a few different ones:
1) Narcissus 'Trumpocodium' - I hesitated about buying this because of the name, but apparently it's a cross between a Trumpet daff and a N. bulbocodium!
2) Narcissus 'Avalanche', a very floriferous N. tazetta cultivar
3) A mix of yellow trumpets and a N. cyclamineus hybrid - I think it's 'Warbler'
4) Narcissus maybe 'Warbler'
5) Narcissus 'No matta' - from Lawrence Trevanion

Yes, agree with you Charithea- lovely to share as we still enjoy hot, summer temperatures.

Sorry for not being around for awhile!
Here are the earliest narcissus in our garden, the hoop petticoats!
The first is Narcissus nivalis which ahs been in flower from mid May! The earliest we've had it in flower here.
The next is an unlabelled "white hoop", probably derived from Narcissus romieuxii

So pretty- mine were poor this last winter but hoping for better next. Sweltering here at the moment, winter seems a long way away now.😊

Good to see you back Fermi - as Umbrian says, it is hot and sticky here so the winter flowering bulbs are long gone for us. But they will come back :-)
I have a small garden in Rome, Italy. Some open soil, some concrete, some paved. Temperatures in winter occasionally down to 0°C. Summer temperatures up to 40°C in the shade. There are never watering restrictions but, of course, there is little natural water for much of June, July and August.

I've posted pics of Lawrence Trevanion's daffs in the past and this is a seedling raised from his hoop petticoat daff 'Oidle Loidle',

This is an old tazetta hybrid known here as "Double Roman"; on Daffseek it is called 'Romanus'

Love the seedling from Oidle Loidle - petals just like very fine crumpled tissue.

Thanks, Carole,
It's quite nice but probably not distinctive enough to name.
Here's another "hoop" which came from Rod Barwick at Glenbrook Bulb Farm in Tasmania.
It's called 'Sacré bleu'

You're more the expert Fermi but I think it is lovely - perhaps you just took an exceptionally good photo!

Well, here's one that I think is a bit more distinctive.
It's a seedling from 'Mondieu' a selection of Narcissus romieuxii from Glenbrook Bulb Farm in Tasmania.
This seedling is similar to 'Sacré bleu' which is also a 'Mondieu' seedling,

Yes, another beauty - I am no expert but fell in love with these kinds of Narcissus when we moved from our house in the country, where Porcupines made any kind of bulb growing impossible, and was able to finally include some in my new, walled garden. 😊
