Not tete et tete.
This was sold as Tete et Tete but the daff was mis labelled. I know what it's not but not what it is. It is a small daff similar in size, like Tete et tete.
the photo has given a good colour representation.

That looks like 'Toto', Sbg - but it normally has more than one flower per stem, like Tete a Tete. Otherwise, there's a very similar one called 'Topolino' which is a single flowered Narcissus.

Supermarkets and Garden Centers sell a wide variety of daffodills under the name 'Tete-a-Tete'. This looks like a cultivar off Narcissus asturiensis. Could be anything, really. Mind, it is a very nice daffodil and worth looking after.

thanks Spritz. All 4 bulbs are just producing a single flower. I hate it when gc are sloppy. They labelled every thing tete at tete, even though some were clearly not even daffs. I will look up the suggestions thanks. sent you a pm re today at work. got you messages too. Did you find 'our friend'?

Yes it is pretty isnt it BA. Thing is this was from a local gc. They should know better, shouldnt they. I really like the pastel tones of it and i will certainly cultivate it.

The supplier may of sent the wrong bulbs in the 'Tete a Tete' labelled net by mistake? Although I only use nurseries as thats my job! The nick-nacks in garden centres annoys me a bit! LOL

he had alsorts mis labelled and said he had lots of tete a tete labels. I should have taken that as a sign they were just being used up. Still it is a pretty little thing.

went back today and he sorted through all his boxes of labels that came with the sacs of daffs. he also had a label for topolino so thanks spritz for pointing me in the right direction.
