Narcissus 'Misty Glen' blooms later than many other daffodils, often in conjunction with N. 'Camelot' (a late blooming, charming yellow daffodil). 'Misty Glen' is dainty in habit, working well with Muscari armeniacum, Ipheion uniflorum and blue and white poppy anenomes (unfortunately, I haven't yet found a way to photograph this combination where both the blues and whites come out in satisfying fashion--white blanches and detail is lost). In person, the combination is really stunning. In Georgia, 'Misty Glen' blooms just as the dogwoods start to flower. The white blossoms of 'Misty Glen' hover pleasantly over the ground, almost as if they are floating, and they are balanced off with overhead drifts of dogwood blooms in the background. I highly recommend this cultivar.
