Proposed new Dispersed National Collection for Suffolk
Eight members of the Suffolk Group are joining together to form a Dispersed National Collection of Narcissus bred by the Rev. George Engleheart during the nineteenth and early twentieth century. So many of these exquisite and elegant Narcissus have disappeared from cultivation or are still out there and unrecognised. A lot of work has to be done to verify these old cultivars which still languish in old established gardens, especially estates where they were massed in huge quantities. If you are aware of any of these Narcissus, please let us know by contacting our Propagation Officer, Anne Tweddle – email email@example.com or telephone 01473 737337.
The following are on our desderata list: Ace of Diamonds, Caesar, Comus, Harvest Moon,Homer, Juliet, Kantara, Matthew Arnold, Nightingale, Parkhill, Pucelle, Radiance, Rupert Brooke, Still Waters and Ellen Wilmott.
