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.

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