My main grouch about this lovely plant is that the size and weight of it's blooms makes it 'top heavy'. For that reason you can never see the full beauty of the flowers unless the plant is staked. It wouldn't be a good plant to grow en masse with other narcissus for that reason.
That said, it is a very attractive plant when staked so that the flowers can be seen properly.
I grow mine as a small-ish clump on it's own.
I probably wouldn't bother buying it again had I been aware of this problem.
