More Details

Like 'Tête-à-Tête' but in the most perfect ivory, ideal for pots and containers and the front of a bed. Very early to flower - superb!

Variety Elka
Type Perennial
Common Name Daffodil
Border Position Container Garden
Bulb Size 8/10
Soil Type Broad Tolerance
Scent Scented
Site Part Shade
Moisture Moist but Well-drained
Height 30cm (12in)
Spacing Plant pointy end up, 10-15cm (4-6in) inches deep with three to four inches between each bulb.
Care Tips Plant anytime from August-November. Plant pointy end up, 10-15cm deep with 8-10cm between each bulb in borders (less in containers). After flowering deadhead but allow leaves to die back naturally to give the bulbs strength for the following year.
Flowering Late Feb - Early April
Vase Life Narcissi make great cut flowers lasting up to a week in the vase. I love them jumbled up in large jugs on the table. Be careful mixing with other flower types as their stems give off a compound that is toxic to other flowers and soak their stems in warm water before displaying to stop the 'goo' from running out.

Enjoyed the flowers in pots in the spring but bulbs look rather small-not sure if they will naturalise for a second year.

Order and delivery went smoothly as always. A good rate of flowering with no blind plants. These delicate coloured mini darts stood up well to the rain and wind. Will be buying more.

This has become my favourite narcissus. Beautiful scented flowers on sturdy stems. Planted in a terracotta bowl these have lasted unblemished for absolutely ages.
