Gardeners' Notes:

Hardly a miniature for me. It's in the 16-18" range. Also I wouldn't say it's long lasting. About average at little less than 2 weeks. In fact, it's my shortest blooming daff. Doesn't hold well as a cut flower either (dies in a couple of days).

Now the positives (because I really do like this flower). I have it paired with Grape Hyacinths and Jonquils 'Quail' and it works wonderfully. It fills the middle of the combo and when it dies the Jonquils and the Grape Hyacinths cover for it. The tiny bi-color flowers are also very cute.

Best miniature I've had yet! Just the right size and gives me several blooms per stem. I love it!

This is a miniature tazetta with pale yellow petals (sometimes white) and bright yellow cups. As with all tazettas, blooms are clustered. This one reaches a height of 6" and grows well in zones 5 - 9. It naturalizes well and can be forced indoors.
