This pixie, born of the tiny, wild N. asturiensis
crossed with N. poeticus
, has soft, primrose petals and a bright yellow cup touched with orange. Bred by Alec Gray, the 20th century’s pioneering breeder of miniatures, it’s too large for the show-bench today but utterly charming in the garden. A connoisseurs’ choice, it was already “very scarce” by the 1960s. 2 Y-YYO
, 8-10”, zones 5a-7b(9bWC), from Holland. Last offered web-only in 2006. We could special order it for you.
