Gardeners' Notes:

I can't believe no one has said anything about this wonderful jonquil. I can't give it enough praise. Grows to 20-22" for me. Blooms profusely (and I do mean profusely) in multiples of 2-4. Lasts and incredibly long time- about 25-26 days of bloom for me (late April to mid-late May). AND it holds terrificly well for a daff as a cut flower. Add to that the wonderfully sweet scent, and you have a sure winner. Must have. Very highly recommended.
