Narcissus cyclamineus "Userpa"

I bought this lovely miniature narcissus from Matt Bishop when purchasing snowdrops. Narcissus cyclamineus "Userpa" was an impulse buy but has justified the modest outlay although it is very like "Mite" available at one third the cost. The difference is that it is about a third larger in every respect save for the foliage, which is altogether larger. Matt says the bulb is vigorous so it will be interesting to see how it compares with its more petite cousin. "Userpa" is a striking flower, its bold trumpet and reflexed petals prominent.
