More Details

A terrible name for the most beautiful delicate and scented bulb which we adore growing in pots or grass. And exquisite picked for a jug or vase. This is a newly found top favourite narcissus which we particularly love growing in grass with Tulip clusiana ‘Peppermintstick’, which you see in the background here, and a great naturaliser too.

This can be gift wrapped in our exclusive hessian sack, with ribbon and a Sarah Raven gift card. You will be able to add this to your basket once you begin the checkout process. To add a gift message to your order, simply fill out the details at the delivery stage of the checkout.

Please note: only items which are showing ‘in stock’ can be gift wrapped.

Care Tips Dead head flowers and remove faded foliage during mid summer. Allow the leaves to die-back after flowering
Flowering April - May
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.
