Gardeners' Notes:

Positive Terri1948 On May 6, 2014, Terri1948 from Yorkshire

Just when you thought all your Narcissus were over, this one comes into bloom. It is one of the very latest to flower in our garden (early May in 2014).
An exquisite little Narcissus with a pleasant fragrance.
It is not fast to increase so doesn't outgrow it's space quickly.
Well worth growing, in my opinion!!

Very pretty contrast between green eye and pure white petals. I was nervous about this not being as shown by seller but it grew exact to picture in color and beauty. It is a smaller daffodil but I actually like having a variety of sizes. I hope this multiplies rapidly so I can plant it around the yard.
