More Details

One of the loveliest, multi-headed, delicate narcissi in beautiful ivory, with elegant, thin foliage, so excellent for naturalising in grass. Unlike chunky forms which create such an eye-sore in late spring with their dying back leaves, this becomes almost invisible. Makes a beautiful cut flower too.

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 March - 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. Leave their stems in warm water for an hour before arranging, to stop the 'goo' from running out.
