Frail delicate beauty doing just fine in junky sandy full sun location. Amazing.

One of my favorites.

A tough, vigorous naturalizer. The flowers are small and exceptionally graceful. The color is a soft lemon-yellow rather than the usual brassy gold, which makes it exceptionally valuable for mixing with tulips. It's also quite late, and useful for extending the daffodil season.

Positive bmuller On Mar 26, 2007, bmuller from Albuquerque, NM (Zone 7a) wrote:

Hawera is a wonderful little daffodil--fragrant, tough, and long-blooming. I've grown it for four or five years, and it has multiplied, naturalizing easily, with no "spent" bulbs or decrease in flowering.

dependable and multiplying here. thin leafed, foliage comes up midwinter in my warmish spot here, and looks nice through blooming.

N. 'Hawera' surprised us with her charm and staying power. We planted 'hawera' with an uncommon muscari underneath a Japanese Maple for an interesting effect. One note--give each bulb some space when planting since each tends to produce many flower stems.

A very charming little Narcissus that is dwarf enough to be grown in rock gardens, at the edge of paths or even in containers. It is also wonderfull for naturalising. N. Hawera is a triandrus hybrid raised in New Zealand by Dr. W. Thompson in the 1930's. Its other parent is a jonquil, which provides its elegance and scent.
The Royal Horticultural Society have given it their prestigious Award of Garden Merit (AGM).
