“Rapture” is one of the most praised narcissus varieties of recent years. Raised by the late
Grant E. Mitsch in Oregon, USA, its early flowering habit and reflexed petals are a marvelous sight on a bright, early Spring day. Again, as with many of the narcissus varieties I have featured here, the link to the cyclamineus species is clear, this being a larger, easier to grow variety. Grant E Mitsch also introduced “Jetfire” a remarkable, long lasting bloomer in our garden.
