    Any sign of spring, after the brutal winter, that is still lingering here in Southern Ontario, is very welcomed.

    How hard is it to trace some of these ubiquitous garden plants back to their wild origins? I see an accession number on yours – what do you know about the origins of this plant?

    A very welcome photograph as there is still snow on the ground around here. The light makes the pedals look very delicate.
    Thank you.

    Eric, this plant is traceable by its unique 3-digit sequence to Wuppertal Botanic Garden in Germany. Beyond that, it would be necessary to contact the institution to find more information in this case.
    Recently, I’ve begun choosing Narcissus (and other) seeds that are accompanied by collection documentation about their wild origins. When we collect wild seed, we strive to provide precise details including latitude/longitude coordinates and habitat information.

    Sorry, Eric, 4-digit. As in, “0352” in this case.
