Can anyone identify the variety of these narcissi for me

  • Are they poeticus? E.g. pheasants eye?

    Or this maybe?

  • Yes, looks like Seagull I think.  Thanks @Loxley

    The problem is - there are so many that look similar, and even the colour in a pic can vary. Are they flowering now or is it an old photo? It's very early for large daffs to be flowering.
    The care is the same though, regardless of variety.  :)

    I live in west central Scotland - not where that photo is...
  • It’s an old pic - taken 12 April 2021 in my old garden. They were there when we moved in and now I’m hoping to get the same for my new garden. They look lovely against the Euphorbia amygdaloides v. Robbiae

    You can probably find lots of similar ones, even if you don't get an exact match @janieeastwood12 . You could spend a few hours trawling through all the specialist bulb suppliers, although that can be a big mistake for the bank balance  ;)

    It's a pity you didn't dig a few up and bring them with you  :)

    I should have added that as it isn't the season for buying them, some outlets won't have the varieties listed, but Peter Nyssen usually has a page with the varieties they've had the previous autumn.

    You might get lucky and find a similar variety for sale growing in pots, in the spring. If not, put some on your shopping list for July or so when the new supplies become available.
    Doncaster, South Yorkshire. Soil type: sandy, well-drained
