Why does Flowmay drive us to such devotion? She is a tiny, miniature jonquilla, all white with an impossibly delicate pink rim on the cup. So improbable a heroine, so hopeful in a world of naysaying giants. Alec Gray named this for the missus. Tiny and rare. Powerful perfume.

A cross of two species pseudonarcissus, Gipsy Queen is a soft white and greenish-yellow miniature trumpet from Alec Gray.

Because she blooms so early, we associate her reign with late spring snowfall, but given her lineage she should perform well in the South. Alec Gray. ADS Miniature.
Jonquilla var henriquesii Henriquesii is a species Jonquilla that is quite close to the variant Fernandesii. Our experience is that Henry has rounder and more mucronate petals than Fernando's narrower petals. Henry is happy, free and scented in the garden.
If asked to name one narcissus that is fundamental to our spring garden, it would have to be a species Jonquilla. Dainty with the strength and endurance of an ironman, with a fragrance second to none, Henriquesii is who we look forward to greeting every spring.
Henrique puts up a flush of foliage in the fall which lasts all winter. Jonquilla cultivars tend to come and go, but the species are persistent, even in our zone 6. The flowers manage to bloom a long time through any kind of early spring meteorological punishment. You will want to put a small vase of Henry picked from the garden in the kitchen window to keep you company.
There is a camp that argues Henriquesii and Fernandesii are synonyms. We offer both, including multiple selections from Fernandesii, for your comparison. Pollen and pod fertile. ADS Miniature
