As a comment about Jonquilla Daffodil (Narcissus 'Verdant Sparks'), jmorth wrote:

Autumn-flowering, lovely clumping miniature that looks just like its parents, opening a deep green and maturing to green with a yellowish cast. There are up to four flowers to a stem, each floret being starry with a deeply lobed corona so that it could almost be classified as a Division 11a. Very free flowering from November through to Christmas. Strongly scented, dominated by N. viridiflorous and multiplies readily. Requires conditions to be dry and hot during the dormant period.

jmorth, do you know where this can be purchased in the U.S.? I would love to have this one for my raised succulent/alpine beds.
I would also like to find Narcissus 'Autumn Habit' for the same use.

Lynn,
Both of the daffs inquired about are brand new introductions from Ringhaddy in Northern Ireland.
http://www.ringhaddy-daffodils.com/acatalog/2013.html
The prices quoted are like 49 dollars and 40 dollars respectfully. I believe they were bred in America by Harold Koopowitz and Marilyn Howe but may be available only through Ringhaddy at this point.
Koopowitz is a professor at the Univ of Calif. Irvine.

That is what I found, but thought you might know of another source. I did read that they are American bred.
Guess I will have to wait a few years.
