Beyond paperwhites: our first bicolor narcissi

I forget what they are called, but they are short-stemmed, with a sparkly white perianth and a tiny and very orange cup. There are two flowers on most stalks. They have maintained themselves well and most clumps have even grown. Maybe we'll divide some of those clumps one of these times, but they're doing very well as they are, so beautiful on sunny days and even more beautiful under gray skies. These join the paperwhite narcissi near the compost pile, once forced in a pot and then dumped; the first clump of paperwhites, of a similar origin, but in the side yard, are nearly done blooming.
