This is a rare, very dwarf, autumn-flowering species once known (mainly) as Tapeinanthus humilis, with a host of other synonyms. It is considered to be a primitive, autumn-flowering Narcissus, which lacks a significant corona (the trumpet) and which has its petals fused at the base into a short tube. It is native to Southern Spain and North Africa only. With a height of only about 8-12 cm (with us) this is ideal for pot cultivation under cold, or alpine, glass and the bulbs can be packed into a small pot. This is a charming little daffodil steeped in evolutionary significance. It likes a really well-drained, loam soil, which is very dry in summer.
