One of my favourite small narcissus, 'Cotinga' grows well in tubs and containers. It looks amazing when planted with other Spring bulbs. I have some growing with small violas and pale blue hyacinths in a half barrel.

One small (perhaps insignificant) problem with the blooms is that the edges of the pink cup begin to disintegrate after a few days. I have no idea what causes this to happen. Despite this, I will continue to grow Cotinga because it is a beautiful plant.
