At the risk of being repetitive, here’s another yellow-flowered springtime bulb currently in bloom in the garden. This particular subspecies of the wild daffodil doesn’t have a common name, though I suppose Muñoz Garmendia‘s daffodil would be acceptable. It is named after Muñoz Garmendia, who seems to have been / is a Spanish botanist
or horticulturist, and a participating author in the 1980 “Plantas silvestres de la península Ibérica” and the “Flora Iberica”.
Interested in bulbs and similar plants? The Scottish Rock Garden Club has a Bulb Log that is now in its fifth year – plenty to keep bulb-plant enthusiasts entertained!
Botany / horticulture resource link: Both Barrie (aka LPN on the UBC Botanical Garden Forums) and Barb (kia796 of same) sent the following link to me. Adventures in Mexico Part III is part of a travelogue series by Paul Spracklin featuring – you guessed it – the plants, landscapes and botanical gardens of Mexico. I very much enjoyed reading the journal and viewing Paul’s photos, but if you only have time to visit one page, I recommend the Edward James Garden in Las Pozas. Who was Edward James? In Paul’s words, an “eccentric (mad?) English surrealist artist”. Chalk up another place I’d like to visit…
