I purchased a couple of these through my local garden center. They are so cute! I love having the texture and color that they add to my garden. In my climate, they tend to show a lot more green than in pictures I've seen.

Living in Rip van Winkle country in the Catskills, I had to have these. I've had a grouping in my rock garden for the last half dozen years. They're very charming and easy. They don't multiply, but there's been no dieback either--I still have the same 10 I planted then. They look like little stars--almost like dahlias.

Planted a dozen or so of these in fall 04. They were the first to bloom for me around April 18, 2005. The picture on the front of the card doesn't do them justice. Beautiful, dainty and a prolific bloomer. Flower almost resembles a mum, it's so double! Really glad I planted these.
Double Flowering Narcissus are identified as having more than one flower per stem and do not necessarily have the distinctive center cup and petals like other Narcissus.
My Bulbs came from Netherland Bulb Co. and I purchased them in a local nursery here.
To subdivide after 2-3 years, harvest them immediately after the foliage has died down, divide and store in a well ventilated cool dry place then replant them in the fall.
Bears small, pale green and yellow, double flowers that look slightly untidy.
Loves a well-drained soil in full sun or light shade. Makes an excellent rock garden bulb and doesn't require staking as badly as other doubles.
