Narcissus fernandesii was discovered in 1943 by Potuguese botanist J. Gomes Pedro. It was found growing near Samora Cor-reira in Portugal and has since been found growing in Spain close to Madrid.
John Blanchard's book on Narcissus has it listed as Narcissus fernandesii. I'm not sure where I obtained this species from but I have it named as Narcissus bulbacodium x fernandesii which I think is incorrect, it is one of my favourite Narcissus I love the short little flared cups and it is growing beautifully in my new garden. It gets up to about 10cm in height and has sun early, till about mid afternoon and is in shade for the hottest part of the day and is growing in garden soil.
