Narcissus rupicola ssp. watieri

This is an almost legendary species from high altitude in the Atlas Mountains. It bears pristine white, shallow-cupped stars in March-April with the leaves.

Despite its African home this is a snow-melt species and it does not enjoy hot, dry conditions as it is much more attuned to cold, damp ones.

Good in a pot and excellent for showing as it blooms in late March or early April with spring shows. Happy here in a raised, uncovered, bulb frame.
