ALEC GRAY CULTIVARS

ALEC GRAY CULTIVARS

ALEC GRAY CULTIVARS

We hold the National Collection of Alec Gray daffodil cultivars. In his life Alec bred many daffodils but he was especially noteworthy as the first person to use the species narcissus of Spain to produce miniature narcissus. The most famous of his hybrids is Tete a Tete. Most of our stocks are very small but we do have a few to offer each year.
