Gardeners' Notes:

Neutral coriaceous On Mar 29, 2014, coriaceous from ROSLINDALE, MA wrote:

This is one of the most notoriously virused of all daffodils. I don't know whether any of the commercial bulb dealers has cleaned up their stock through meristem culture.

Peeping Tom is a beautiful little Narcissus. Perfect for growing with other small varieties.
It grows well in a tub and even better in any garden setting where it can be left to multiply naturally.
I've seen it growing in a Springtime garden with hellebores, hyacinths, anemones and other Spring flowers. This garden also has shrubs and small trees casting light shade.
I've also seen it growing in a grassed area.

Both settings were beautiful!

This daffodil is new for me this year--and was the very first to bloom--before February Gold, which is usually my first. I love its bright yellow and elongated cup.

Introduced by Parcival Dacres Williams (1865-1935) from St. Keverne, Cornwall, UK. One of the most beautifull among the cyclamineus. Yellow golden backwards placed petals with a little rather long yellow golden 'trumpet'..Height: only 25 cm. Flowering for me in april.
