Delicately ruffled, pale primrose yellow blooms in a cluster of two or three per stem and with thin, dark green foliage. An heirloom from the late 1930’s that looks lovely planted with early azaleas.

Narcissus are sturdy, long-lived perennials that naturalize well and make great cut flowers. They prefer rich, well-drained soil and attract early pollinators. Plant with early perennial companions whose foliage will disguise their maturing foliage which should not be cut or tied, although the flower stems may be cut down. Deer and rabbit resistant; known to be distasteful to squirrels and voles so place later-blooming tulip bulbs below them to deter those voracious diggers.
