is this Bridal crown or Cheerfullness.

East Yorkshire, United Kingdom Gb

I have these double mini narcissi in pots. One pot has clusters of 5-8 flowers the other pot 2-3 flowers.
which is which? I always thought the 5-8 was cheerfulness but a visiting friend says not. this is the 2-3 flowered one.
thanks in advance




there are a few possibilities you could check out and see what you think , there is an indoor variety that grows outdoors "Erlicheer". or Winston Churchill and they could also still be cheerfulness ,
Ps please dont think I know what I am talking about I just happened to be looking through a catalogue with daffs in and compared em to your photos seaburn hee hee,

The cheerfulness I've seen are more orange centred than yellow. They have a strong smell of Gardenias too.

I don't think Cheerfulness is a double, is it?

I go with Mac's Winston Churchill. It's best to put names on your records when you buy your bulbs.

I usually do keep names, well i have for the last 5yrs or so as i thats when i really got into plants. Its when people buy me presents and buy the bulbs loose from a local plant man that the trouble starts.
'Oh lovely what are they?'.
'Do you know which one?'
'small white ones'
etc Arrrrrgh. lol
cheerfull is a double bulbaholic.

They are very similar and more images of winston churchill match than cheerfullness but bridal crown is still a good match. I wonder how different they are genetically?
thanks for all the help.
