Narcissus cyclamineus "Rapture"

 "Rapture" is one of the most praised narcissus varieties of recent years. Raised by the late
Grant E. Mitsch in Oregon, USA, its early flowering habit and reflexed petals are a marvelous sight on a bright, early Spring day. Again, as with many of the narcissus varieties I have featured here, the link to the cyclamineus species is clear, this being a larger, easier to grow variety. Grant E Mitsch also introduced "Jetfire" a remarkable, long lasting bloomer in our garden.
